Good place to work. Need to feed 300k employees. So salaries and bonus get diluted.

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

    Pros

    Lots of committed people with good ideas. A healthy work-life balance and a genuine interest in partnering for growth.

    Cons

    Goals and job security changed week to week. Contractors were often left in the dark about major company decisions. Progress and momentum was often inhibited by leadership changes and unclear direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsourcing U.S. jobs looks bad and feels bad. A smaller, more secure workforce could foster success and be a shining example of investing in the American workforce.

    Lack of work life balance during my last job assignment, there was enough work for 2+.

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

    Pros

    There are so many great hard working people. There is also so much great diversity and experienced from employees of the companies like DEC, Compaq, Tandem. Have met co-workers who will be lifetime friends and colleagues. Company has so much potential to do more for their employees and therefore customers..

    Cons

    To much focus on cutting expenses and Work Force Reduction. This causes employees to not do the best they can because they get distracted because of job searches or lack of confidence in job security. Business units are disconnected and don't seem to know what the other does. Classic example is the ES & TS organization. They don't know what each other does and finger pointing happens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the use it or lose it vacations. Allow at least 1-2 weeks of rollover. I had lost vacation days because of the workload. Truly value your employees, walk the talk.
