I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Advantages of a large company such as good benefits and enough resources to support the work. Good policy allowing for moving to another position within the company.

Cons

Too much bureaucracy. Not enough communication. Too much emphasis on profitability and growth. Too much time spent tracking time. Salary freezes and downsizing when things aren't going well.

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

    Pros

    great pay, great benefits, flexible hours

    Cons

    There is a new Customer Service policy every 2 months. Managers have no problem calling you on attendance, yet they are constantly unavailable.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees more. W@H managers don't hide behind Unavailable in the chat rooms.

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedule, decent pay, but could be better. Raises were slight if none. Opportunity to grow if you want to, but you need to take the initiative. Nice facilities, great people, good work life balance.

    Cons

    Because of the economy there were lots of take aways from over the years. Many employees feel very unsettled and don't feel the loyalty that was once HP. For a new hire, it is still a great place to work.
