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

Pros

HP offers great environment for learning from peers: age varies greatly and veterson seasonality also ranges.

Cons

No mentorship for advancement. Management to employees is terrible--all about setting expectations with investors at the cost of employee moral.

Advice to Management

Need new change of management at director and manager levels. What use are VOWs if reports favor what exec management wants to hear year-after-year? Poor directors and managers are rewarded by hard efforts of direct reports and no credit of their own.

    Pros

    HP has flexible work hours and is willing to accommodate many different schedules.

    Cons

    Senior management is struggling. It is going to take a long time to rebound, and they don't have the management team in place.

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

    Pros

    The people that work here on my team are great, friendly and always looking out for each other. It isn't cut throat

    Cons

    Pay sucks it isn't competitive and you won't get a raise and don't expect to get a huge end of the year bonus. Transparency - don't expect any, we don't find out any information until it is public news. As a global company working nights or early mornings is expected.

    Advice to Management

    Make a decision on our vision and stick with it, stop changing your minds. We failed with the touchpad and said we would get out of that industry, and here we are again developing a new tablet.
