I worked at Hewlett-Packard for 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.

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

    Pros

    pay (depending on the area you live in)
    working condition on campus (fair sized cubicles, fairly recent equipment)
    laid back dress code

    Cons

    employees are just expendable commodities to meet Wall Street quarterly expectations.
    individual performance amounts to nothing as raises and bonuses are highly concentrated at the top and whole groups are being cut
    current company OK results just due to massive cost cutting and layoffs.
    No strategy

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

    Pros

    Somewhat flexible work schedule(used to be better). Lots of great people in the ranks who want to work hard and focus on adding value.

    Cons

    Senior and Middle Management are out of touch. too much emphasis on cost controls, not enough emphasis on creativity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    walk around and talk with individual contributors. get to know the internal organizations under your direction. Employees want to contribute to success. Sometimes the changes being implemented aren't clear or explained well enough to get the masses onboard. Seems like everyone is covering their tails instead of worrying about doing what is best for HP.
