"Challenging projects, Flexible hours, friendly & caring co-workers"

Pros

My time at HP was rather enjoyable mainly because of the people. For most of the part, HP tends to hire good people who are knowledgeable in the area of their work, responsible, friendly and caring individuals. I strongly feel those are the important element of a good place to work.

Cons

Too many restructuring or reorganizing projects that led to lots of busy work but not necessarily productive or align with company objectives. Because of changing environment, long-term projects suffer cuts, changing objectives and losing talents.

Advice to Management

There are many talented people at HP but the company need to find ways to keep them happy with better incentives and challenging projects.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexible work environment
    Decent pay
    Decent talent (but misused)

    Cons

    Benefits not competitive
    You work around the clock - prioritize the reactive, mundane vs longer term strategic
    Non-existent teamwork - it's what can you do for me and how fast
    Managers make empty promises
    Sales oriented business where brains definitely aren't as valued as brawn
    Friends take care of friends and lots of behind the scenes politics

    Advice to Management

    Cut the dead weight leaders to turn this dinosaur around.
