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

    Pros

    Very casual environment, flexible hours, good work-life balance. Many extremely talented engineers / technical people.

    Cons

    Completely disfunctional management. Under Meg, has not gotten any better (maybe worse...if that is possible). Directionless, changing directions daily, counterproductive budget and headcount games.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to diversify the company, and keep leveraging the very strong hardware engineering teams who could design ANYTHING. Realize that the CLOUD strategy is a losing proposition before you loose all your hardware people.


  2. "Lots of opportunities, hard work, great colleagues"

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

    Pros

    Opportunities - many functions and business models to link into for a broad array of opportunities and experiences

    Great colleagues - very committed, energetic, and smart.

    Employee programs - mentoring programs, high performance employee programs, access to executives for career talks and informational interviews, Digital Oasis for free print products

    Cons

    Long hours - working in a global company, juggling the project activities that require resources from all 3 regions is tough. Though the company headquarters is in Calif., the work day starts much er to align with Texas (where the de facto headquarters is) and Europe and Asia-Pacific.

    Rewards - pay increases are small and infrequent, but better than the complete lack of increases we experienced a few years back. The performance revview process still needs work.

    Advice to Management

    Set a clear direction, help employees understand it and understand what they need to do to support it. Avoid the drama.
