    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    It has been close to 9 months that I have been at Hewlett-Packard and the experience has been nothing but awesome. The company is in the midst of transformation and yes there is restructuring going on, so obviously bonuses or raises is not something that you would expect. For me as a software developer its most important to learn something new everyday. And this is what happens to me everyday.

    Cons

    Too many meetings, but guess that's what happens when you are at any big company. Especially when practicing agile.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, pay, flexible hours/culture (in most cases). There is a strong team spirit and my managers always had my back. Employees working from home are treated well with whatever equipment they need to do their job.

    Cons

    Since acquiring Compaq, where I started, HP has been cutting technology, jobs, employee social programs, and shrinking some of the finer benefits -- no more vacation carry-over, no more after-hours, on-call or holiday pay, no more discount on Employee stock purchase, and a severe slashing of 'spot awards', stock options, year-end bonuses and other incentives or pats on the back for a job well done.
    As with my peers, most of my years with HP were filled with the uncertainty of continued future employment. I was Always keeping an eye open for the next opportunity to make a lateral or slightly upwards move to dodge the next Lay Off Bullet.
    HP has systematically cut their US Sales, Support and Development teams down to the bone... to the detriment of quality, customer satisfaction and reputation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop outsourcing high-tech competencies to tragically unprepared entities.
    Use what tech muscle you still have in the US to dominate the world of 3D printing.
