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

    Pros

    A strong customer base waiting to see some technology leadership and true business partnering.

    Cons

    HP management still, after 24 months of lay-off and false starts of renewing their culture and direction, has not figured it out and no one is emerging to take a leadership role.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think you need to find a strong industry business leader who wants to dominate the market. Taking shots at silo solution and technology areas does not demonstrate the corporate culture of a true industry leader. No one has the vision and demonstrated execution experience to dominate the market over the next 2-5 years. HP seems to keep losing customer confidence evidenced by many rip and replace of HP products.

    Pros

    Ability to move across and up within the organization. Environments that feed and motivate your creative or strategic chops.

    Cons

    Not EVER a 9-5 environment. A lot of long hours. Pay is not bad, but not competitive.

    Pros

    The most notable feature of HP has always been it's people. They are dedicated, hardworking and terrific.

    Cons

    .HP's recently proposed company split will go far in helping them more operationally effective.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Proceed with splitting the proposed split into two diverse companies. Pay close attention to middle management's interpretation of corporate decisions.

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

    Pros

    There is a great support system and training for new hires, which I believe is important. This allows new hires to gain valuable coaching and right knowledge to perform their tasks at satisfactory levels. When each hire is deployed to their specific projects, they will no longer be at a loss.

    Cons

    Sometimes, too competitive, especially senior colleagues who wants to keep all knowledge to themselves. Promotes an individualistic culture. Although may be viewed from a positive standpoint, this can have a huge impact when it comes to project status. When new hires begin to act like they do now know what they are doing, and this can cause misses and delays in the project.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management should start benchmarking against competitors' working culture in order to gauge how far HP lags or how ideal theirs is. This could get employee's morale up and may potentially increase productivity of employees.

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

    Pros

    The company has great resources for its employees for training and support. The leadership in my organization changed as soon as I was hired and that made it difficult to navigate the customers and projects because my regional manager was new to the organization and the products. The compensation for TPM's was great for Atlanta.

    Cons

    There were not many opportunities for advancement in the specific organization I worked for within HP Software.
