    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible, Challenging at times, good-pay and benefits. A lot of your professionals which makes the work environment a lot of fun. Opportunity to travel for meeting with customers and accounts.

    Cons

    Over the last 5 years there has been a TON of 'restructuring'. It seems that every fall a round of lay-offs happens which can make job security a bit unnerving at times. If you are a performer and don't ruffle the feathers too much, you are generally pretty safe though.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More transparency

    Pros

    Being able to start your work day at home. Good friendly people to work with. Not overly competative. Benefits are pretty good.

    Cons

    Split activities have increased work so much that full time ends up working 50 to 60 hours a week. Compensation is not great, not nearly as competative as many other large companies.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    *** Friendly people and great atmosphere

    ** Good energy in the building. i didn't feel a weight on me as I was working.

    ** Very hands off management. I didn't have to deal with much in the way of management. The only time I seen my manager was to give me Kudos or t o do a review. I like the style

    ** Location Location Location.... It was not in a nightmare of traffice to and/or from the offie.

    Cons

    ** Failure to recognize what they've got and as result, they lose out on good employees.

    ** Not much else I can say as far as CON's go... This was a fantastic company to work for...

    Pros

    Strong leadership team, seasoned in software sales.

    Large company with requisite bureaucracy, many areas of the business with agendas that are disruptive and non sales producing.

    Continually look to shed the crushing administrative tasks and bureaucracy.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Access to a lot of training, promotions available, great people

    Cons

    Office Culture - Drop the 'Back in the Office' - it's hurting performance and isn't bringing people closer together

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't make reorgs without extensive evaluation of impact to performance, drop the 'back in the office' pursuit (many are looking for jobs elsewhere, due to the way this pursuit has been handled - it's hurting performance, given the global nature of the company)
