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

Pros

Good solid base. Long term government contracts. Talented people. One of the few big companies, Largest technology company by Revenue.

Cons

Constant Executive Churn. Lot of bureaucracy. Departmental Silos. Curbed innovation. Got left behind on the inventions which seeded the company.

Advice to Management

Less bureaucracy and more invention needed.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great marketing - cool message. Great Sales reps. Much better after the HP sale. Benefits are good.

    Cons

    over 90% turnover for a reason. You can sell, but management will take the deal away from you so you don't get the commission. Pricing is not available for sales people on 90% of the products and to get pricing, you have to give up 75% of your commission. Lot's of travel, metrics - 5 face to face a week and 1 proposal. No org chart, limited access to engineers, no white papers. Some of the software works. Run away! Don't stop here.
