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

    Pros

    Used to be a good company with good benefits but as soon as Carly became CEO it went downhill.

    Cons

    It became very competitive. They only wanted to keep the best employees which created an environment of hostility and back stabbing. And every year they would take something away from my benefits package. For example, it used to be that you would get 2 weeks severance pay for every year you worked there. Then they made it 1 week for each year. People are exiting out of there in droves because it is a terrible place to work.

    Advice to Management

    All I can say is good luck in retaining top notch employees in an environment that is cut throat and where you are taking away benefits. There are much better companies out there to work for so why would the high perfoming stay there?

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

    Pros

    They are bringing in fresh blood and attempting to stay competitive. Good work-family balance.

    Cons

    Pension and retirement plans are going away. It can to be very political. Many people are interested in keeping their jobs rather than pushing the company to be competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in seasoned workers from smaller companies to bring the company back to life.
