    good challanges, management lacking

    Former Employee - Software Developer in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Software Developer in New York, NY

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    free food at their hq
    lots of technical challenges
    If you are able to get on a smaller project, you can be left alone for a while and be a lot more efficient. If you are on a flagship product, expect a lot of time wasting with meetings

    Cons

    management is lacking a purpose or direction. they are still stuck in the past and the heavy processes are killing innovation
