I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

Pros

There are some very hardworking, knowledgeable and dedicated people at this company and the company is truly trying to turn itself around.

Cons

A sense of direction has not filtered down to employees and the fact that the announced lay offs (27,000) are coming in phases of a period of years has leached the life out of the employees.

Advice to Management

Finish the lay offs now and start the building.

    Pros

    Very large company with opportunities to try different things. Significant presence all around the world. Outstanding depth of technical knowledge. Huge brand recognition.

    The company is currently experiencing a lot of change and uncertainty. Organizational changes are happening on nearly a daily basis. Headcount reduction programs are taking a toll on morale.

    Pick a strategy and stick with it.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    HP is a strong supporter of telework.

    Cons

    The biggest problem with HP is that the company has lost its heart. There is no passion there. Working for HP is like eating dry white toast every day. Employees seem indifferent most of the time. The company has templatized everything so much that it stifles creativity and innovation. There is so much bureaucracy, it makes getting anything done next to impossible.

    Advice to Management

    HP Management - Listen to your employees. Care about your employees. Don't just say you do - really care about what they have to say, how they feel and how they are. HP has lost its heart and this loss is evident in the workplace and is showing itself in your products. There is simply no passion there. Improve your compensation, improve your benefits, show you care, and maybe your employees will too.
