I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time

Pros

Relaxed work environment, flexible hours, work from home optional

Cons

Career advancement and further compensation very slow, all management needs improvement

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Many issues with possible microagression toward developers amongst lower level management. Need to learn difference between micromanaging and actual effective management strategies. Also, Agile practices not practiced as much as they should be.

    Pros

    Experience and knowledge, processes that work, friendly professional people, great place to learn and gain experience that are relevant and world class

    Cons

    Market was challenging 2007 to 2010 which was my employment period, this was reflected in raise, benefits and morale of the team. Restructuring was the norm with no room for upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems to be turning around in the right direction, great job.

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

    Pros

    Large company with opportunities. Work from home

    Cons

    Layoffs and cuts, Salary increases were slow for high performers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on something. HP does way too many things. They acquire companies to get into industries and then do nothing with it (Palm).

    The Autonomy acquisition is a joke. HP is the king of overpaying for acquisitions.

    EDS was a great company in the day because it treated it's employees well. My few years at HP I did not see that same thing.
