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

Pros

You can have an OK work / life balance but at a very high cost

Cons

Worst managers, at the time of offer told for a senior position. Manager gave me a position way below I deserved and then work on a different environment that brought my carrier down.
No one in HR to listen to you. No local HR

Advice to ManagementAdvice

do not cheat with people. Be transparent for the people who work for you.

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

    Pros

    Corporation perks, social activities like happy hour, birthday celebrations. Nice office. You can gain a lot of experience because the company has a lot going on.

    Cons

    The people they hire can be unfriendly or standoffish. The HP Way is to be fake to your face and bad mouth you behind your back. If you are a social animal, this might not be the company for you. The company values are off-kilter. The company cuts corners and bleeds teammembers dry. If you work in a corporate function, get ready to be outsourced.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out the people that have been at the company for a long time that don't add value and are getting by via working the system. Invest some money into your infrastructure, core business functions and when the function is running smoothly then you can cut heads again. Don't cut a department that is already bled dry.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    Pros

    Focus on customer, people, and great products. The HP Way is still alive!

    Cons

    Bureaucratic at times and less nimble to make decisions. Getting better, however, with new top leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Block and tackle bureaucracy.
