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

Pros

Great employees, very smart people, some flexibility in when you work your hours if you get your job done (see WW comment below), people doing the day-to-day work still retain an incredible passion for doing the right thing for the business

Cons

Management's behaviors do not align with their words, creating enormous amounts of distrust. Shift in management actions is resulting in short-term decisions with short-term payoffs with disregard for med-long term thinking. I've witnessed this being discussed openly on multiple occasions and then simply ignored. Definitely a worldwide company; be prepared to be on 6 am calls with Europe and 9 pm calls with India if people you work with are located there.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Need to improve trust in order to get this back to being a great company. If there is bad news, talk about it openly - employees can handle it. Saying everything is good and laying people off creates incredible amounts of distrust.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I have worked with so many knowledgeable people and learned so many different things from my peers, HP sure knows how to pick talent when hiring.

    Cons

    In the past 12 months the work life balance has become known existent. Per policy you're not able to further your career, while you're given 10 different jobs to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider that your employees have children and a life away from HP, and remember that there shouldn't ever be any role/job where the employee isn't aloud or able to take time off due to not having someone as a back-up. Especially when there will never be another employee to act as a back up because workforce has been reduced to the point there isn't another hours in the day to complete one's job.
