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

Pros

Flexibility, great experiences, encouragement to take on new jobs, used to have great career opportunities

Cons

Management has lost their way and tried to be all things to all people. They really killed the goose that laid the golden egg by not valuing employees other than lip service. Basically any career movement within the company is gone.

Advice to Management

Do the hard thing and do what's RIGHT, not just what Wall Street wants or what will make Meg and the execs rich.

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

    Pros

    HP still has some of the brightest people doing interesting work.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits have steadily declined relative to market for the last 10 years.
    Even if you do great work, one year you get a good bonus the next year it is crap.
    Your manager will always have some excuse: "the division didn't do well so there is less mony for bonuses", or "other folks are doing an even better job. etc.

    Advice to Management

    The company is aimless at the top. HP has been quick to acquire new technology or make investments only to pull them when it is not immediately successful. VPs are mindless. They are more worried about hiding their mistakes than making a success their divisions successful.
