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

    Pros

    Very safe job. Solid benefits and decent starting salaries. Very difficult to be fired. Provide lots of opportunities to find mentors and interact with upper management.

    Cons

    High performers are not given adequate opportunity to increase responsibility, pay, or job level. Even the top level performers are told to stay in their current roles or rotate laterally. Incredibly difficult to break into management.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better opportunities for top performers. Show the inside track to management.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard part-time

    Pros

    Employees are paid a monthly salary

    Cons

    Long hours with low pay.
    Limited promotions even after putting in ridiculous hours
    High attrition due to many abandoning this sinking ship
    Excess workload for remaining employees
    Lots of cost cutting originally started by Mark Hurd leading to cut in innovation and non investment in employees.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training employees. Promote instead of giving excuses.
