    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    Pros

    Every one in the group is very friendly and supportive in assisting new personnel in getting up to speed. They have a good work at home policy. Management is exemplary.

    Cons

    It looks like that during hiring, management may be out of the loop as to the actual time frame when a new hire will be allowed to visit the customer site.

    Advice to Management

    Try to get a better feel from upper management as to their long term plans in hiring and very large world wide layoffs.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    Pros

    Unlimited sick leave, three weeks vacation with ability to buy one additional week, PTO matching, volunteering PTO. There are lots of great benefits but the compensation leaves much to be desired

    Cons

    Raises seem to be few and far between. I negotiated when joining so that may be the reason but it is not a way to retain good employees.

    Advice to Management

    Do not micromana

    Pros

    Great salary and benefits. Too there are no more company cars.

    Cons

    The company is so big it's lost direction. The HP way is dying.

    Advice to Management

    Delegate more.
