I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Very few pros - Big global company, many opportunities, particularly as so much good talent is leaving. HP is willing to pay to get people to join and/or stay.

Cons

No long term winning strategy (declining printer/PC business, no mobile strategy, weak services business), very weak senior executive team and EC. This includes the business and functional leaders. Complete lack of ability to make good decisions and implement. Top talent at all levels quickly leaving the sinking ship. Note that only the average and weak talent is left. This is particularly clear across the functions (Finance, HR, Marketing...) as well as the businesses. More will leave as results deteriorate in last quarter and bonuses are limited. Limited focus on people and development. Very uninspiring company.

Advice to Management

Meg Whitman needs to re-look at the EC and make hard decisions. It's the same players, year after year, making the same mistakes.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    very good atmosphere, very friendly people. manager was sort of a dutchbag, but maybe I'm wrong.

    place looks very classy and professional. very good energies

    Cons

    seems like a huge conglomerat - maybe little problematic to get ahead.

    maybe just maybe they were a little Condescending - but I'm not sure. maybe it's just me..

    Advice to Management

    develop inner plans to develop new employees more detailed. it seemed like it's just another internship which they promote at a super different recruiting process. which it isn't in any way..
