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

Pros

The working environment was the reason I joined HP. To sum it up quickly, refer to Dave Packard's 11 simple rules.

Cons

Not the highest paying IT company.

Advice to Management

Lead by example, get back to your roots of inventing (not solely aquiring), and empower your people.

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

    Pros

    There was a great work-life balance. The company has a strong presence all over the world and has lots of resources to help you do your job well. Also, there are a lot of pockets of excellence within the company, but you have to use a lot of elbow grease and patience to make it happen.

    Cons

    There have been a lot of changes in strategy and it is confusing for the market, which makes it tough for the employees to do a good job serving our customers. It is a very large organization and sometimes you find out that there are duplicative efforts, which can batter the ego a bit and cause some confusion.
