Pros

Great work environment and benefits. Friendly people with great experience. Campus is large and beautiful. Easy to shift between teams and experience a large variety of complex projects.

Cons

It is a large company. A company that tends to try and solve every problem by adding more layers of approvals, paperwork, and shutdowns then wonders why it can't keep up with other companies. Also loves to solve budget problems by cutting workforce then getting even more perplexed on why they are moving slower.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You have an incredibly talented and powerful workforce. Give them the power to win! This means you have to take some risks but your people are very capable of minimizing these risks and exceeding expectations. Your release processes are so outdated, overprotective, and sometimes just plain absurd that none of your teams can reach their potential.

    Pros

    The company seems to be moving in the right direction. Most managers are very flexible with your work schedule. Management is great on a one on one basis. Many of them have been with HP for a long time so they remember the core values that were instilled by Bill & Dave.There is a plethora of opportunity within the company because it is competing in so many different spaces.

    Cons

    Salary increases are rare, and work force reduction is becoming a regular thing at the company. It's a tough situation because the company is trying to turn it around, but they are too big for their own good. Compensation just doesn't compare to its tech neighbors.
