I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The people you meet at HP are generally great people. There is still some work / life flexibility.

Cons

Where to start? Lower pay than industry standard. Not much alignment among upper management on goals and directions. Impossible performance goals, especially lately. Lots of layoffs but additional work load still expected to get done with remaining teams. Somewhat toxic management environment. Management will push you to work long hours to get the sheer volume of work completed, and many times this means working weekends. Have to be on call during vacations. Not the best place to work if you have a young family and want to spend time with them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get better aligned and create clear, obtainable goals for employees

    Pros

    See above. Working remotely

    Cons

    Benefits constantly stagnant or simply reduced. A shame

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to pay people the bare minimum so the company doesn't suffer years from now. Do something to keep the brightest and make it so people really WANT to work here.
