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

Pros

Challenging work; top notch talent; abundance of opportunities

Cons

HP doesn't know how to treat their service segment. They are still very much a product company at heart and that mindset manifests itself in all aspects.

Advice to Management

Figure out how to better manager (and appreciate) the service business you paid $14 bil for in 2008.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working time is pretty flexible as usual. Co-workers are friendly and willing to help. Team work seeking efficiency. Generally it's a great place to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes too dragging, people are layback and compensation is not the very best. The promotion opportunity is not easy to have. Most of the time it depends on how much business opportunities in your field of work.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to the different work done by different groups sometimes the work are duplicate and it's a waste of time and resources.

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

    Pros

    Big company. Lot of opportunities to move amongst the organizations and enhance different skill sets. Employees are treated with great respect. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Big company. What you get depends on which organization and the which pocked you end up working for and with.

    Advice to Management

    Long term focus is very important. For a product development company, it is very important to understand that it takes vision and time to deliver unique products that solve real customer problems.
