    Pros

    Great career opportunities across all corporate divisions including flexible work schedules. Managers provided a hands-off approach to your day-to-day goals and activities. Supported your career goals and provided multiple internal training opportunities.

    Cons

    Periodically, ran into slow bureaucratic decision-making within the group, division and corporate wide.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to give more autonomy to individuals to make timely decisions. Also enhance the authority and responsibility of individual contributors

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

    Pros

    For me, two major positives are coworkers and work location. We have a good group of immediate coworkers. We are able to share ideas, discuss challenges and work together to find positive solutions to meet business needs. My work location is close to where I live. This cuts down on commute time and helps with work life balance.

    Cons

    Employee morale extremely low. Clearly not supportive of a USA based workforce. Currently in the middle of layoffs and WFRs - work force restructuring. This is code for moving jobs out of the US. We recently lost more folks due to these actions. We were told point blank that our jobs were leaving the US and our time frame is short. The only career path open to US employees is out of the company. That does not mean there aren't jobs - good jobs. It just means a US employee is best served by being aware and making the most of his or her time to garner experience and skills for use elsewhere. Because there will be an elsewhere. It is not a question of "if", it is only "when".

    Advice to Management

    Cost matters. But so does quality and people.
