Pros

Good opportunities for career growth. In my experience, managers allow and encourage job changes into new areas. There is a Technical Career Path that provides a path for technical people to move up without having to move into management. Lately they've been encouraging mentoring and different ways to share information across divisions.

Cons

HP is a huge company and is full of annoying bureaucracies. If bureaucracy drives you nuts then don't work for a huge company. If the work you do and the people you work with are more important then HP is a fine place to work and there are lots of opportunities in a large company.

    Pros

    HP is fine with working from home, but depends on your manger?
    Brand Name

    Cons

    There are seldom any salary hikes. Once a while you receive some bonus..but too little.
    Performance reviews are really bad and career growth is not talked much. you only grow when you change projects??

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate and retain good employees. Employees are the greatest asset, value them and listen to them.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Cool technology, good car plan, okay benefits.

    Cons

    HPQ used to be a great place to work... They use to care about their employees. They are now focused on the green (dollars). They have lost their identity trying to be everything to everybody. All of the great leaders and awesome sales folks are leaving HP for better opportunities.
