Pros

Hewlett-Packard allows employees to take risks and to be pioneers in their field. They feel it is better to try and fail and learn rather than not try at all.

Cons

The company is rather large so being recognized for your achievements is sometimes quite a challenge. YOu tend to be lost in the mix.

Advice to Management

It is important to always listen to everyone in the company. The listening should not stop at any one level but should be valued from not just the top down but from the bottom up.

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility. Individual contributors are given a lot of responsibility and decision making authority (depending on department). Opportunity to move around and participate in different areas of the business. Exposure to a lot of interesting information and products. Fun and forward technology. Nice people. Good location.

    Cons

    They're in downsizing mode and the whole thing is not handled well -- stringing groups along for months and years without clear reasons for who gets laid off, when, how they are selected etc.
    Some managers have been there forever and drink the coolaid of "the corporation can do no wrong" when obviously there are areas of weakness. No HR to speak of other than what's required to protect the corporation from litigation -- employees are pretty much on their own.

    Advice to Management

    Talk to some individual contributors 1-1 to learn what's really going on. There's too much separation between upper management and the people delivering the products.


  2. Great place to grow professionally!

    Pros

    Allows one to grow professionally and gives you the opportunity to exercise judgement and enhance your leadership skills

    Cons

    Promotion opportunities are limited and not always available.

    Advice to Management

    Need to figure out how not to put all eggs in one basket in terms of focus areas.
