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

Pros

HP has a great work life balance with understanding challenges with kids, doctor appts. You can leave the office for doctor/dentist appt without taking time off. Benefits are good.

Cons

Life at HP is changing. No more working at home. Meg wants everyone in the office but with the eventual move to Palo Alto there isn't enough space. So 70% of people will have cubes and the others will find a focus booth. Does not make sense if the reason to have everyone in is to collaborate. No pay increase with a job promotion. Pay is not competitive with other companies.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Short commute, large campus with inside connected walkway, garage parking

    Cons

    Own unfriendly and hostile (back stabbing, credit stealing from project managers) work environment (racial and seniority bias), incompetent engineering managers with seniority, bad meeting times/delayed and misunderstood email responses with non-English speaking oversea teams, uncooperative cross functional teams (don't care attitude contractor and lots of them there), bad/dangerous parking environment (narrow lane and shared with manufacturing contractors), over worked/under paid and asking for additional help would not be resolved.

    Advice to Management

    The engineering managers and project managers need to be sympathetic and helpful to the hard working engineers. They need to support the engineers without be opinionated and judgment biased. Fire those who are all talk (hot air) and keep all the teams under control.
