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

Pros

HP has great people, flexible work environment and dress.

New hires come into the company at lower levels but a higher pay than experienced employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Review salaries to current market conditions of employees for retention.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor

    Pros

    Pretty relaxed working environment, good project planning and documentation system.

    Cons

    Sometimes it's too relaxed and a lot of people are laid back

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize what you already have instead of hiring more people.

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

    Pros

    In the day, the freedom to take risks and pursue big projects with support from management. The pay, benefits and vacation time were good.

    Cons

    As time passed, it lost its edge and its commitment to creating innovative new technologies. The HP management that acquired Compaq (and thus Digital) was a good old boys club. They managed every business as if was "a cash cow" obsessing over margin - leaving no room for new initiatives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Use the scale and resources to create new technologies and user experiences.
