    Great Company, but get your money in the starting salary.

    Pros

    HP is Flexible on working hours, which is helpful. It's also great experience getting to work with the world's largest customers on a daily basis.The benefits are actually really good too!

    Cons

    It's difficult to advance in pay once inside the company. I'd push for as high a starting salary as possible because you won't be getting any "large" raises. Also it would be good if there were continuing education benefits (IE to work on your Masters). In theory the program exists, but the funding is so limited

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in employee growth opportunities and make it easier for employees to advance internally. Getting higher compensation is like pulling teeth, even where warranted. It seems the way things are set up, they'd rather pay double the salary to an external candidate than hire internally.

    The number one thing I got out of this company was international experience and a great resume, but not a career.

    Pros

    Terrific resume builder; international experience; a good culture & very nice people to work with; a propendency to hire people right out of college

    Cons

    Far too much restructuring and reorganizing - it seems that it allows a good number of managers to do a poor job and then simply move in order to hide their mistakes; Too many of our managers came from Wal-Mart... you can fill in the rest with that;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frugality is a good thing, but encourage your employees to do a better job by putting a carrot at the end of the stick.
