I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

HP has great hiring policies. There are great people to work for and with. The company still has a prestigious name and is a valuable thing to have on one's resume.

Cons

What HP doesn't have is a great working environment anymore. There are major changes going on, as with many other companies. They say they support a work-life balance but they have laid off supporting staff and that makes the remaining staff responsible for multiple jobs under one title. They still have not flattened the organization enough to allow the front line people the flexibility to do their job without upper management approval.

Advice to Management

Learn to treat your employees like the assets they are. You took a lot of time, money, and effort to hire and train them - you need to keep them and show loyalty if you want the same in return. People count - not just the bottom line.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Nice Facility, Good supervisors. The location was fairly convenient, and they did a good job clearing the snow in the winter.

    Cons

    Their track record of promoting from within wasn't very good,, and it took 20 months to get a review that included a salary adjustment.

    Advice to Management

    Good luck to you, thank you for the opportunity.

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

    Pros

    Benefits are good(i.e. health benefit)

    Cons

    Growth is very slow.
    Job security is very low. Policies are manipulated at project level.
    Old EDS work culture is not popular.
    No prior experience in services is hampering this huge brand.

    Advice to Management

    It is high time for higher management to concentrate on managements at project level and evaluate their qualification to handle their responsibilities
