I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Wonderful place to learn, grow and leave.

Cons

Career advancements need to happen outside of the company. If advancements are offered and accepted, HR will not match the pay to the current market value or even an internal pay scale.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Learn to act like a startup again. Create pockets of innovation that are not mired in the corporate bureaucracy that hinders current growth and get back to the core DNA that was infused into "The HP Way".

    HP was excellent in the 90s but faded as numerous poor CEO selections diluted its culture and benefits thus stock value

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

    Pros

    Compensation is fair for the HP sites in remote areas but not for HP sites in major cities like Bay Area. Work life balance still possible if you choose jobs carefully. Good people as always to work with.

    Cons

    Discontinuation of its lucrative pension plan. Reduction of benefits. Poor selection of CEO recently that lead to low value stock options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More differentiation in compensation for performance

    Pros

    Pay for management is top notch.

    Cons

    Does not like innovation, forward thinking, or anyone that may disrupt their caste system of tenure first, good ideas last.
