    Pros

    Great employees, Great working conditions, Outstanding facilities, state of the Art computers and networks, Work from Home options, Virtual meetings, outstanding training programs and options.

    Cons

    Job promotions are far and few between.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep expanding the company as you are. Splitting the company into two separate companies with one focused on hardware and the other focused on services was a very wise decision.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Generally, well structured. Good pay scale.

    Cons

    Nothing really. Yeah you do get the occasional politically-oriented individuals, but just avoid them. Go do what you were employed to do, try and have fun while you are at it and then go home!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    HP was a great place to work with amazing team work

    Cons

    HP relies too much on contract personnel. Contractors won't always give their all, when they know they are just a number that could and will be cut at any time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more permanent employees

    Current Employee - Computer Science in Boise, ID

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Work-life balance is great, everyone is super-friendly and helpful, and finding a mentor (or more than one) is easy. The benefits were also fantastic.

    Cons

    The hiring-on process, especially interactions with the Human Resources department, took quite a while. My information stayed inactive in the system for days, which meant I was unable to do many things that were required by my job until everything was settled.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would advise management to make sure that requests for things that only managers can provide, like requests for digital authentication credentials, are taken care of as soon as possible.
