Great Place If You Want Big Impact

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

HP has a broad portfolio and operates in more countries than most other companies. If you enjoy operating at scale, this company offers great experience for those people willing to take charge of their careers, find new opportunities and rotate through different jobs and divisions.

Cons

The company is in the middle of a turnaround. Definitely need to feel comfortable with change and thrive in that kind of environment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Really like the culture since Meg Whitman joined the company and appreciate the HP Way Now values.

    Most people think HP stands for Hewlett-Packard, rather it's an acronym for the work environment -- Hell Pit.

    Pros

    The only Pro is getting a paycheck. Seriously, working at HP is fine for a short time (can't expect more since they thrive on turnover) so long as you have a high degree of pain tolerance and the ability to endure mind baffling incessant changes that literally screw your chances to succeed or to help the company be successful.

    Cons

    Space does not permit enough room to detail the many Cons working at HP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find some leadership, especially at the CEO level and within the Legal department (particularly the management in Legal responsible for servicing HPES).

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

    Pros

    Time freedom. Flexibility. Good place to work if you just want a paycheck with no real effort.

    Cons

    Lack of serious Leadership. Training sporadic. Way too much office drama. Lack of work. People speak in meetings unprofessionally. Leadership is lacking and more interested in her personal life and why people find problems with her than worrying about understanding what is going on with her team and the professional environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a serious look at the management on this contract renewal team. Put checks and balances in place to establish an actual successful training program for new hires. Discontinue the office drama and the negative atmosphere by appreciating employees who work hard and contribute. Understand the work loads or lack of so that the team can function together successfully. During my 6 months on board I witnessed a lot of mistakes and money being wasted and not booked properly. There's a HUGE disconnect on this particular team. And it starts with management and stale employees.
