I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (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.

    The HP way and it's culture and history are a great reason to work there. Continued investments are made in training and the company has a strong value system.

    The company is large to the point an employee can get lost in the shuffle.
