Pros

Being a large company there are lots of growth opportunities, Excellent benefits especially for Military Servicemembers serving in the Guard/Reserve.

Cons

Being that HP is large company, you can get lost in the numbers. The one Size fits all mentality can be predominate and counterproductive at times. QMS (Thats allI have to say about that).

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The work is extremely rewarding in R&D. The technology is fantastic, and the the opportunities for a challenging career are better than at most companies.

    Cons

    Historical culture issues with culture are quickly evaporating.

    Advice to Management

    Continue embracing the heart of the HP Way, invest even more in R&D and customer satisfaction. The Autonomy software portfolio has so much more potential with more customer satisfaction.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Most of the people are truly interested in doing the right thing.

    Cons

    The IT org. is extremely disfunctional. Most IT managers are focused only on pleasing their bosses and meeting annual objectives, many times against sound common sense or recommendations of their employees. Internal IT processes are crippling. Training / career advancement is practically non-existent. No raises. Many new hires leave after 3 years for $10-20K for more money. I'm taking their early retirement money and running for the door.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the HP Way. Trust people to do the right thing. Train them. Be honest with your people.
