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

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    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 have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    My previous track record and wide recognition.
    Love for the company which made me what I am today.
    Rotation opportunity.
    Friendly people.

    Cons

    Lack of senior management competency.
    Acute internal politics across all levels of employees and managers.
    Loss of talented people.
    Loss of HP way values.
    Zero innovation.
    Short term focused.
    No accountability at management level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on innovation.
    Focus on retaining talents.
    Take care of people, not just wall street. People will give back to this once great company many times more in return.
    Get rid of incompetent VP's and Directors. They cause more harm than good.
