I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)
Excellent pay, perks, company car, benefits and products. You could always get in the door with HP's name behind you.
I had the great misfortune of representing HP when webOS and the HP tablet were first launched. I evangelized both of them to my clients and they were pulled 6 weeks later. Extremely frustrating---made me feel like a hypocrite. New CEO, corporate restructure, workforce reduction, life-altering decisions made at levels too high within the organization for my management to even have a say. It was a madhouse. That was then...no idea about now.
Advice to Management
I believe that there's something really wrong with leadership when a person delivers a multi-million dollar new business deal, after expending 1.5 years of effort, and then becomes a victim of the WFR just weeks before the PO was awarded to HP. I was suddenly unemployed and didn't see a penny of the commission. It disrupted my career in too many ways to count. With all of the internal chaos it was hard enough to sell, let alone close something of this magnitude in the midst of the looming WFR. There should be exceptions to the rule. My experience? Horrible across the board. As a caveat: I don't know how the drastic measures during my time at HP may have paved the way for greater successes realized today, but the cost was extreme to some of us that didn't deserve to have to pay.
