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

Pros

free environment work place. you can work from home two days each week

Cons

without good benefits, even need to pay insurance by yourself, company doesn't cover. If you are just a college graduate, this place is not a good place to gain more growth. Even a team lead who is working at this place for over 10 years, he is not easily to change the position to management.

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

    Pros

    Great people working toward a common goal; insane levels of communication from top management all the way down - real focus on transparency and making sure that employees understand the direction, the messages and what is going on with the business.

    Cons

    We are an intensely diverse work group with a huge percentage of "teleworkers". The working from home is great but requires organization, drive and self discipline to "get it done" every day, without anyone looking over your sholder.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to get teams together annually for face-to-face meetings

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

    Pros

    - Money was good
    - Smart people
    - Could work virtual

    Cons

    - Not paying attention to customer (from the top)
    - too much bureaucracy - tough to get anything done
    - No strategic vision - lack of innovation and overall pretty cold-hearted

    Advice to Management

    Get someone in at a high level that can truly make a difference. Force the board to weed out people who continue to make stupid moves at the top level.
