    Pros

    It's a casual business environment. They offer a 401K match

    Cons

    There is a long time in between raises. Raises are giving out like every 3 years or more. Then, they are only 2.7%. It's always, this year the money isn't there or the company didn't make there numbers, so no raises this year. It's always something. I feel they take too much at the top (mgmt.) and don't leave much for the employees on the bottom/low level.

    Advice to Management

    Pass on raises yourself and push the money down to those who are lower, they do all the work to make the upper managers look good.

    Pros

    I worked with some really smart people when I was at HP. It was a fun place to work. Some of the product lines were and few still are market leaders.

    Cons

    HP has come on hard times. It was once a high technology company, now it is a commodity company. How can selling ink for printers be considered cutting edge technology? This transition was, perhaps, inevitable when HP got so big. Many commentators say the problem is the greed of management. I would say management is doing the best they know how, but they have no vision. As a commodity product company they are subject to the general situation in the economy which has been lousy for six years. They stop hiring Silicon Valley executives and look at Proctor and Gamble types who understand how to sell commodity products.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pretending to be a technology leader and learn how to sell commodity products in a down market.

    Pros

    Adequate pay. Good Benefits provide added value to total compensation. Employees are empowered to make decisions. Low level leadership tries hard to get the job done.

    Cons

    Too much leadership turnover. The way they make their numbers is frequent work force reductions. Those that remain must fill the gap. Late to market with emerging technologies. Very poor pay increases and bonus compensation for top performers.

    Advice to Management

    Do as you say, not as you do. Leadership by example. Don't try to fix something that ain't broke. Listen to what is being said and eliminate all the red tape. When you are doing more with less, don't lessen the pot even more.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, brand leverage, good corporate experience. It is just a massive company, s that gives you the opportunity to move around.

    Cons

    VERY average pay, lack of innovation...The company is so massive and bureaucratic that it is almost impossible to get anything done.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the dead weight and get back to your roots...Stop the endless acquisitions and divestitures and become innovative from within again.

    Lack of direction, many managers do not have the knowledge or experience to lead a team and are not accountable for their actions
