    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Company has good benefits and is a great place to work. I believe that the company does too much outsourcing when they have very competent people already on board to service customers needs.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for Customer Service technicians or electronics technicians in US.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Commit to serving your customers using the resources you have rather than looking for those resources outside of your own organization.

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

    Pros

    Pros are great benefits, good work environment with diversity and a sense of fair play. Whenever a "wrong fit" is hired above you know that they will turn over pretty quickly, company doesn't waste time with that. In midst of great turnaround and about to grow after some lay offs

    Cons

    I think as far as cons, you do have some senior management who do not look into history to see what worked. We can't say "industry standard" when it comes to benefits that claim to be world class. We need to be better than the standard sometimes and I know some upper levels are pushing to make sure this happens

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is very busy putting their "Stamp" on it. Slow down that first week and get to what works well, what is world class and than go for the "needs to be fixed"

    Former Employee - Inside Sales Representative in Conway, AR

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The people I worked with were fantastic. Managers cared about employee feedback and success. Great benefits and incentives from day one. Lots of industry knowledge and certifications available.

    Cons

    Unusual salary/commission payment schedule. Lack of productivity automation. Partners and sales reps could never get on the same page, causing customers to be bombarded with calls.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    For a technology company, they have a huge lack in internal software and productivity development. Instead of writing software to track our performance, we had to keep up with it ourselves and enter daily into an Excel file. Spent too much time trying to meet organizational criteria and not enough making sales calls. Need to get partners and sales reps under unified CRM tool to reduce organizational chaos.
