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

Pros

Incredibly smart, talented and positive people who are doing their best to make HP successful. Great opportunities to work globally. Very good salary and benefits, especially at the management level.

Cons

Lots of turnover and reorganizations at the upper management level, resulting in lots of churn on priorities, projects and what people should focus on. Hard to stay positive with all of the negative press - but that should lessen as HP's performance starts to improve.

Advice to Management

Be humble, listen to the employees that know what's going on at the operational level, and bring back sincere employee engagement best practices.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Participating in the challenges of a turn-around - that seems to be gaining traction (2/2013). From the inside, it appears that concerns about the ability of senior management to grasp and deal with basic organic problems have been met.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges of the turn-around include dealing with changes in management direction and changes in staffing.

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

    Pros

    A Global company with the ability to provide a multi-faceted career. Strong history and wonderful track record in the industry of being the number one or number two player

    Cons

    HP has lost its way. Its values are only to the shareholders. It promises to employees are shallow and its management is just being recycled.

    Advice to Management

    Become a truly cutting edge company again. Read the HP way. Invest in your employees..not just with lip service
