I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Work was good, fellow employees were helpful, immediate manager was supportive.

Cons

The culture of separating the regular, or full-time, HP employees from those on less secure third-party or agency contracts. They all do the same job.
I started on contract at $19 per hour, but this was reduced to $16 in a cost-cutting measure.

Advice to Management

1: Use more on-the-job training and sharing of skills.
2: Trust your employees more, including those who are not "full-time" HP employees.
3: STOP OUTSOURCING JOBS to "low-wage" countries. It is not worth it, either in money or in quality.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules and the ability to work from home is an added value for parents. Benefits are comperable to other companies. I have worked with some great people at HP over the years both as peers and leaders.

    Cons

    Job codes and salaries not aligned to job performance. There is talk on alignment, however action does not seem to follow. Management not always aligned and direction and procedures. When it is time to move to a new position, you are basically on your own.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Was able to work with little restriction and therefore develop a simple theory rapid delivery organization.

    Cons

    Main emphasis appears to be to unemploy the American worker and higher less than qualified off-shore workers, even though the ratio is multiple off-shore to one US employee for productivity. Delivery to the customer does not invoke, accuracy or performance of software and services. Quality has been replaced by cheap labor.

    Advice to Management

    Realize with more professional and qualified personnel, the performance of the deliverables is more accurate and consistant. Also, when interpertation of the specifications must be done on-shore then hand fed and continually redefined for accurate delivery off-shore there is a significant loss in profit and customer satisfication. The delivery takes longer and has more deficiences.
