Great company to work for, but after some years now, it's still trying to find its identity.

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

Pros

Pay. Work life balance. Support for training. Ability to move around.

Cons

With the buyout of Compaq, the company now has never ending lay offs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

A lot of the Field Service employees that were laid off, were the ones getting the job done. The others were using the system to make it seem like they were getting the job done.

    HP is a team based, highly collaborative culture where your teammates are more like family than coworkers.

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

    Pros

    High value is placed on team work, work life balance and collaboration. All interactions are respectful and actually fun! People want to know you both professionally and as a person. All employees are seen as having value.

    Cons

    Tremendous cost pressures have shrunk the budgets and the cost cutting is getting ridiculous. Amenities like edible coffee, trash collection and maintenance are being cut. Cafeteria food sucks and heat/cooling in the offices are being adjusted to save money. So sad to see for such a great company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline our product line and save costs by eliminating those that aren't selling. Shutdown offices and allow more employee telework to save you real estate costs.
