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

Pros

They offer a decent salary and benefits package. There is good opportunity for worklife balance in some jobs. It is a well respected comany.

Cons

HP use to be an extremely employee friendly company. Because of the economy and decisions made by several CEOs, this is no longer the case.

Advice to Management

Do a better job of taking care of your experienced employees. They are the backbone of your company.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    Pros

    many different types of resource skills to leverage.

    Cons

    Very slow moving and heavily burdened by process. Also, HP is having financial/business problems and seems to be in a perpetual cycle of restructuring and layoffs which can be pretty stressful. Additionally, HP keeps changing the CEO and vision for the company (3 CEOs plus an interim one in 2 years time - from 2010 - 2012).

    Advice to Management

    Loosen up on all the internal red-tape. Pick a strategic direction for the company and stick with it for at least a year. Encourage the promotion of individual, creative thinkers instead of just conformists.
