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

Pros

The individual contributors truly care about the customer and each other. Flexible work hours is a definite plus and the name really helps on the resume. HP is a stepping stone company to a better place.

Cons

Management only looks out for them self and refuses to acknowledge anything is wrong with the HP corporate culture. Constant changes in reporting structure make it impossible to obtain a meaningful review.

Advice to Management

Never forget about how your actions and refusal to acknowledge issues affects others.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A large organization with many resources, functions, events, if you can find the right contact. Been part of a group working on a cool technology that kept interest going.

    Cons

    A large organization with a good layer of bureaucracy, unhealthy doze of politics at top level. In and out of hiring freezes took a great hit on team and morale.

    Advice to Management

    Stop doing erratic decisions, and smooth out your hiring / layoff cycles. Too many layers of management. Better segment your business as there are many unrelated parts that share infrastructure that is designed only for the fattest cow. Need to become much more nimble.

    HP is struggling and everyone is fed up with the revolving door at the top

    Advice to Management

    Find out what market you want to dominate and go after it with a singular focus
