I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Outcome oriented employer
Telecommuting flexibility (trending back to the office)
Interesting work environment.

Cons

Executive leadership transitory.
Too many middle managers managing up.
Management has little awareness of what is occurring in the field. i.e. it is not uncommon for others to take credit for your work.
Investments in the future are scattershot and inconsistent.
Relies far too often of the heroic efforts of good people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Realize all organizations support onsite customer work and telecommuting.
You have a long way to go before your recognition and advancement systems have anything to do with actual job performance.
Universal pay cuts and salary freezes will only accelerate your brain drain.
Cut middle management.

    Former Employee - Solutions Architect in Plano, TX

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great flexibility with work/life.
    Great people to work with in all areas (I had positive experiences in 3 different groups over 4 years)
    Provides the opportunity to work in more areas of the business than most companies can offer
    Great name to have on the resume

    Cons

    Very unorganized at times
    Little formal training when starting a new job
    The pay scale is not good, so if you start low you will remain low unless you make a jump to management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees more for the work they do. They keep the wheels turning.
