Current Employee - Software Development Manager

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

Pros

Flexible time
Huge amount of assets to leverage from across business units
chance to work around world class and highly capable engineers
Opportunity to work on very challenging projects and products (Hardware development side)
HP is a very reputable and admired company.
Innovation is at the heart of the company and we live that everyday.

Cons

Company is too big (320k plus employees)
Operation processes such IT and HR may not apply fully to each business, sometime frustrating to deal with.
Expectations are too high company wide so even delivering exceptional products the company gets measured against itself which hides relatively small victories with respect of the whole.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop buying companies and re-invest internally where the innovation is coming from.

    Pros

    Basically HP is a good Technical School. As a serious employer there is very little substance and fulfillment there. HP is not just a shadow of itself, but has fallen down hard and will never get back up. It is just a matter of time before the organization gets broken up just to survive.

    Cons

    No Promotions for Stellar Work Performance. No Salary increase. For a California based company the Salary Structure does not pay a living wage for California Residents. HP is managed by a bunch of Buffoons!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You should all have some self-respect and resign!

    Pros

    great culture, good people, ok work life balance.

    Cons

    bad people at management level, too slow in making decisions, bad place for a software developer to work at.. Things do not change as fast, still stuck in legacy software.
