I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The pay and benefits package is competitive. In some roles there is a good work life balance if you have counterparts in other regions who can assume responsibility outside of your regions working hours. There are programs to develop employees though they are being cut back.

Cons

Business decisions don't reflect the publicized company values. Big cost cutting efforts and outsourcing at the expense of the customer experience makes working in support difficult and stressful. Multi-year work force reduction program ongoing.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great Place to work .

    Cons

    Majority of employee are contractors. when you complete your contract , you have to wait 100 days to join back. Internal manager not helpful in trying to get you another job within.
    People comes in and out like musical chair. Jobs always gone to India and Europe.
    Be careful when you take the job, you may not be marketable when you leave because all are HP product.
    If you Cisco expert I do not recommend joining the company as a consultant. You will downgrade you career.
    Overall , it is a good place to work and good employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please hire and keep good workers and do not laid off good employee who has been there a long time.
    Try to hire or extend contractors to other roles or openings if possible.
    Procurement have no clue and need to be quick in the hiring process. Overall HP is a great place to work.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It is hard to find a pro working for HP as they run their business based on cutting heads to meet their bottom dollar.

    Cons

    Entirely too many work force reductions over the years - especially the older seasoned experienced individuals. One could conclude the work force reductions are based on age, but trying to prove that legally would be difficult.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find someone to run HP that actually cares about the employees and not how much money goes into their own personal bank accounts.
