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

Pros

They provide great benefits and good pay.

Cons

No stability. I worked for HP for 12 years and I was a very good employee. The company outsourced my position to another country because it was cheaper which is what they are doing too many of their departments. Their employees have been loyal but the company does not return the favor. They use to be one of the best companies to work for and they once had great integrity, but they have lost their way.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Quit outsourcing to other countries. It hurts the employees, the company and most of all the customers.

    Very old school and bureaucratic environment, but still a good place to work at depending on your priorities

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

    Pros

    - Still a very good name in a number of countries (e.g., Latin American and others), good add into a resume.
    - Huge company with a lot of internal opportunities for job/career movement
    Can still find very good managers/peers, if you look in the right place, but teams' structures change very frequently

    Cons

    - Serious lack of ACTUAL decision makers
    - Very old school and bureaucratic environment. Senior management seriously needs to lighten up and acknowledge that IT companies of the future (as we claim to be) operate differently.
    - Can't believe they are making ALL people come back to offices without a sound ratinoale behind that, but rather based on what CEO and friends want, for whatever reason.
    - Lack of top-bottom communication

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Huge, lots of different experiences, some really fab people. significant career diversity in different business units and locations when the timing is right.

    Cons

    huge, slow and shrinking. missed key disruptions in technology - mobile, tablet, virtualisation, enterprise SSD, SDN, on and on....

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Very quick to hire from the outside instead of promoting from within, not taking the hard choices on culling slow and shrinking businesses and getting serious about growth and margin expansion. Are you IBM or DELL? can't be both.
