Turnarounds are difficult

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time

Pros

There are lots of bright people at HP. People are working hard to make changes for the long term growth of the company, but it can be difficult.

Cons

My experience is that when leadership positions become available, HP fills those positions from external candidates. I also was expected to work early mornings and late nights as part of a global team.

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

    Pros

    great company to work for and grow your career.

    HP has many career enhancing opportunities with the ever changing IT industry such as internal HP university and full access to books x 24-7 to help you grow your IT knowledge.

    there are many changes going on with the company all the time such as org changes that will give you a chance to have a mixed leadership that can be global, your team could be made up of several cultures and makes an interesting mix.

    HP medical benefits are good and other standard perk's but could be better such as the HP employee purchase plans that only give 10-15% if that on items, most of the time you can beat that by shopping at many different retailers.

    vacation time is good and is dependent on years of service after 5 years goes up to about 4 weeks, this policy has changed and still could.

    Meg the CEO trying to bring back the whole HP employee togetherness plan that will bring HP workers in office more and allow for co-worker growth, post this plan was most employees could work from home and this has now changed for all new hires will not be given this option.

    Overall depending on your ability to grow and not get too comfortable in one position is the best advice here, HP should be a consideration if your looking for a job

    Cons

    as stated there are some down falls from the work from home policy changes this has made some people to move on.

    Work environment will vary depending on where and what position you choose or hire into.

    HP has a new pay for performance and is very strict on this standard Work force reductions are every 6 months or about and switch between the UK and other regions. This WFR is tied to just not your performance but manager review and most of the time each team may be required to reduce a person and your management may not have a choice who to let go.

    Note that the EU and south america including Asia regions will be hit hard in 2014 and the US at the end of year.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Immense room for improvement and side tasks. For those willing to work hard and get ahead, it can easily be done.

    Cons

    Information is scattered and disorganized. KM is awful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest the next 5 years in improving availability of documentation and knowledge.
