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

    Pros

    No a whole lot of them.
    Good but standard offerings that customers like.
    The benefits are OK considering the market.

    Cons

    Innovation is stifled
    They like to say "Think outside of the box." But when you do you get your ears boxed.
    Their unspoken mantra is "Take the safe route."

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time promoting your selves and more time promoting the company.
    Respect those who work for you.

    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.
