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

Pros

Great place to make a difference and impact to millions of customers. Lots of great people with deep experience. Great place to learn how big companies operate.

Cons

Company is huuuge. Left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing - although that is getting better with meg. Lots of layers so need to address a heavily matrixed org.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make it a fun place to work again. Invest in events and the 'cheap' stuff that start ups have like free drinks, snacks. Also pay competitively.

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

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities, good managers who are mentored into being even better managers, good compensation and great benefits, many resources available to employees.

    Cons

    Big company so you can get lost in the fray unless you've got a supportive manager who is willing to guide you. If you don't become one of the 'chosen' it becomes more difficult to advance even if you're a great employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on appreciating seasoned employees. Increase visibility of training opportunities to new employees.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice place, with very good opportunities and at the same time the low-management is good.
    Salary is good but don’t expect to get a salary raise soon.
    Excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Bad high-management
    Don’t expect to get a salary raise soon.
    Not so balance on terms of work/life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the balance of the work-life relation.
    Salary raise? Are you familiar with that term?
