Former Employee - Software Engineer in San Jose, CA
Former Employee - Software Engineer in San Jose, CA

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Open sources groups is very helpful and they have political influence over some parts of HP

Cons

Awful upper management. The articles about HP and their dysfunctional board is most definitely true

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Respect software engineers. Just because you folks don't understand open source doesn't mean that you should be cheap about hiring and making major investments into software

Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Roseville, CA
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Roseville, CA

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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?
