    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Autonomy to do my job. No micromanagement. Full support and access to immediate and next level managers. Direct customer interface.

    Cons

    Raises are slow to come but they do come and are in line with the general industry.
    Having to participate in a downsizing was pretty much the only option open in my case.

    Advice to Management

    I fully understand that management has to make some very tough decisions.
    The primary decision is what business does HP want to be in.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been able to find lots of interesting work and uniquie roles. In general the people are smart, easy to get along with, and dedicated.

    Cons

    Humongous company, so big that you can get lost in it.
    Definite class system between the Executives and the employees. Over the last ten years the continual decrease in benefits and focus on employee engagement has erroded overall morale.

    Advice to Management

    It's time to stop re-inventing ourselves, and focus on a long-term sustainable strategy.
