I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (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".

    My experience is not the best at this company, as a mechanical engineer, doesn't provide for professional development.

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

    Pros

    One of the best things that this company have is the opportunity provided for personal care, it provides health insurance, a very nice gym, massage and nutritional professionals among other. The best thing I consider for working at this company is the work-life balance you have, it gives you the flexibility you need to do family activities.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges that I find in this company is the fact that it is very hard to get promoted if you are working with projects that give remote support. Training are short on line tutorials and are not drive towards professional career development. It doesn't give you the opportunity to do a post graduate degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice to management could be to start looking back at what was the company in the past, search for what management did to grow it to a point of glory at that time and begin to focus on that to bring the company back to those days of glory.
