I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time

Pros

Great for recent graduates that are open to numerous roles. It's a great way to expand on current knowledge and to learn new things. There are numerous opportunities for growth and the company helps employees develop career plans so they can work towards achieving personal/career goals quickly.

Cons

There are too many organizational changes in leadership.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Colleagues are phenomenal. They are what made HP great and continue to strive for excellence despite management. God bless them because their work goes unheralded.

    Cons

    Just awful management in Legal. Stupid former law firm dropouts couldn't hack the law firm and glommed onto holston and brought their awfulness to HP. Couldn't have been worse. They have no experience, no commonsense, and no business running a legal dept. Or any dept. At all.

    Advice to Management

    recognize that employees have a value. We're not all deadbeats. We love HP and want it to succeed.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -HP provides internal training for employees and does not expect you to take time outside of work to do so. Even if you work many extra hours or on weekends, management compensates you with extra vacation days for your time
    -The majority of people who work there are very nice and friendly. The managers are fair and good about giving feedback.
    -Most managers are flexible, which allows you to set your own time schedule as long as you get your work done and attend meetings on time.
    -The work environment and company culture is pretty relaxed and easygoing. There are no strict rules regarding work attire.
    -Since HP is so large, there are a lot of organizations and committees you can join in order to meet people. They also host many social events for both young professionals and for those with families.
    -Benefits are good compared to other companies. Having a gym onsite is also nice since you can work out straight after work or during lunch.

    Cons

    -It's hard to see overall impact of your work since the organization is so large.
    -The salaries are quite low relative to other large corporations in this industry.
    -There are no assigned desks or cubicles. You have to get there early in order to sit in a nice area or someone might take your spot.
