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

Pros

You can work from home

Cons

They do not promote from within. Management frequently raves about new managers brought in from outside the company, as if nobody within the company could have filled the role. Which makes sense, they do not develop personnel. Travel and training were eliminated to reduce costs. All salaries were cut 10% to make numbers which enabled Senior Management to receive over $100 million in bonuses. Cutting 50,000 jobs over 2 year period. Wrote off $8 billion in bad investments in 2 successive quarters.

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

    Pros

    Multifaceted technology platform, competitive industry, mature workforce.

    Cons

    Too many and frequent changes in middle management.
    Your work efforts and accomplishments do not permeate and hence are soon forgotten. You are always constantly proving yourself to a new set of new managers who are oblivious to the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Let the new management know of the skills and strengths of the people who really make things work in the company and who have held fort in the thick and thin of things,

    Pros

    The company doesn't micromanage, great benefits & salary.

    Cons

    The lack of willingness to discuss changing my work hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company needs to be more open to employees needs. At least be willing to have a conversation regarding them.
