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.

    Pros

    It's a great company to work for. They believe in promoting within and you are able to drive your career.

    Cons

    Salary ranges are not available to the public. This can be sometimes discouraging knowing that people can come in at different salaries and not know what the salary range is.

    Advice to Management

    I believe the management here on this account can be more people friendly.

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

    Pros

    Focus on product investment is creating opportunities. Enterprise services (formerly EDS) has benefitted from being able to cross-sell to current HP clients.

    Cons

    Poor management at all levels. Lack of career coaching and development. A very impersonal and unsupportive HR team. A very left-coast mentality/culture which is out of step with the overwhelming majority of employees at HP (the majority are remote for the company headquarters).

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at the front-line and mid-level managers in ES. With the upper leadership churn over the last several years, there are a large number of very poor leaders that are hiding and not being weeded out.
