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

Pros

HP offers a very good salary and ideal work environment

Cons

Lately HP is troubled with bad management, group politics and lack of appreciation and benefits for good work, while the pay is good the benefits and bonuses are negligible (if any)

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    HP is an iconic silicon valley company which has seen many ups and downs over the years. It has been the alma mater of many great innovators, most notable Steve Jobs. It is involved in pretty much every major space in the technology industry. So there is a place for everyone here. It is a good place to work, especially for people who are getting started with their careers as there is more possibilities to explore, experiment and learn. Many areas to choose from, either technical or in administrative.

    Cons

    The work environment is good for most, however the salary and benefits are in the lower end of the scale even for the experienced. As many acquisitions have been made over the last few years, it has become an amalgamation of many different start ups and therefore beginning to have a culture similar to that of start ups, without of course the benefits that come with working in a start up. The company has a very large diverse portfolio of products, however software makes up only a tiny percent of revenue. The size of the company of over 300k + makes it difficult to manage. The recent events concerning senior executives has badly damaged its reputation. The company faces major tests in the coming years, so the people who work here have a brave future.

    Advice to Management

    More emphasis on software and services, spinoff PC/Printers in to a separate company.
