    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Opportunities for learning, growth, and frustration. A lot of real world experience with customers, defining what the want and how we are going to meet it.

    Cons

    A body never knows when their job might move to a different country. Living with the possibility of being notified that the job will be gone in 90 days is tough.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop moving so many projects to the lowest priced site. It involves continual cost to move that may not result in real long term savings.

    Pros

    HP coworkers are amazing. Almost everyone does whatever it takes to make an effort successful. They are friendly and helpful and there when you need them.

    Cons

    Work-life balance doesn't really exist. Too many management layers for many teams. Culture can vary GREATLY from org to org.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The upper-middle management could stand to be in the trenches more and deal with the politics less. Employees with years of experience are being let go to hire someone at about the same salary. This is not a winning proposition long-term.

    Pros

    The new senior management seems to have a better outlook for the future than previous management. There is a lot of change and innovation happening within the company, making it a good place to grow. The managers seem to care about finding the best fit for employees in the organization. HP is also very team oriented, which makes everyone more engaged.

    Cons

    The training process is not as good as it could be. Much of the training is online videos which are okay in some circumstances, but the company could benefit from offering more hands on training for new employees.

    Great atmosphere to be part of such an historic turnaround. Meg is an unbelievable leader who is genuine and leads from the front.
