Really good people work here; working with such outstanding people has been the high point of working at HP.

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

Pros

Good values and ethics around how people should treat each other on the job; interesting work is there but you may have to move around some to find it; the pay is pretty good compared to other companies in the local area.

Cons

Things seem more political now than in previous years; non-executive employees are probably not rewarded as well as they once were.

Advice to Management

In general, people want to do a good job in their work for HP and see the company succeed. Reasonable guidance and management by objective, with generous rewards, can help employees to exceed expectations. Constant change and thrash make it difficult for employees to stay focused and know what is expected of them. Is there a way to manage the constant change so as to minimize road map, people, and values churn?

    Pros

    Great flexiblity in your job schedule. Lots of good people that want to do the right thing.

    Cons

    The original HP Way that drew so many to the company is long gone. Too much managerial structure and red-tape internally and non-mgmt staff always gets low end of salaries and no bonuses/raises. Work your butt off to keep your job, not to advance.

    Advice to Management

    Try simplifying the structure of the company - too many managers managing managers. Instead of giving bonuses and increases to execs, try giving them to the people on the floor actually getting things done for the company.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - They owned massive market shares in software testing solutions, printers and servers. - If you are in sales and are given a good sales patch you can do well, otherwise you'll have a more difficult time.

    Cons

    - Politics, politics politics….and nepotism - Former CEOs and other senior execs have had very public and embarrassing scandals.

    Advice to Management

    Hard to say…there's a lot to be fixed. The HP ALM software suite is looking customers very quickly to newer and effective and cost efficient competitors.
