  1.  

    Fantastic in the early days. Tough to remain resilient during the many "transformations" and CEOs of the last 10+ years

    Former Employee - Marketing Manager in Palo Alto, CA

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn different businesses, customer segments, and to be located anywhere

    Cons

    Large company bureaucracy, ongoing headcount and budget cuts, CEO and sr mgmt turnover

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    CEO and CMO turnover results in turmoil and is a distraction to employees, customers, and productivity. The Board can really help by being more selective in CEO selection and better managing the CEO and EC compensation pkgs (or exit pkgs), and by negotiating a better/fair price for acquisitions.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Working at HP was very stressful. I was constantly worried about job security.

    Former Employee - Program Manager in Houston, TX
    Former Employee - Program Manager in Houston, TX

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    HP offers great benefits (health, dental, vision, etc). They reduced their 401k match, but at least they do match some.

    Cons

    The manager was constantly threatening that my job would be sent overseas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace your employees for the skills they have.
