Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Great place if you want to work remotely, from a home office. The collaboration tools help you be part of a group "like you are actually there in the building".

Cons

There is no consistency of management approach or style across divisions/groups/teams. Some are extremely good, some are quite dysfunctional.

Advice to Management

Develop consistent management styles and methodologies.

    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.


  2. "Dependent on individual manager when on Contract"

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

    Pros

    IF you are working on a contract:

    Everything will depend on the quality of your manager. You will find some very good ones, and some not so good.

    Cons

    Your manager will not get a big amount of support from the "Mothership". Expect to work at getting what is available and promised. This can be a big time sink, so monitor and start action when there is a problem.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent in quality and reputation. Show interest in employees, not the next quarterly bottom line.
