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

Pros

People, many different locations to work from, diversity valued, product portfolio is large and varied, can move within company to a new job fairly easily, some work from home options

Cons

HP is currently seeing some erosion to its historical bottom line profits, mobile devices encroaching on PC share and HP to date has not entered this market successfully, finance jobs being outsourced to other countries making advancement in finance career tougher

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Large company with many resources. Great Co-Workers. Adequate Product Training, but could be improved.

    Cons

    Way below Market Compensation, especially for a company based in California. This is a terrible situation which needs to be immediately addressed to retain and attract quality employees. A complete joke for a company of this size who is a perceived industry leader and captain of innovation. Upper Management instability with a complete lack of Vision and Common Sense. The HP Board needs to be replaced along with all upper Management.

    Advice to Management

    Look back and see what HP was all about when the company was started and make any attempt to implement the "real" HP Way and it's principles created by founders Bill and Dave.


  2. "They are working to develop an environment for employees to succeed"

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Re-gaining lost momentum in the market place.

    Cons

    Tend to have a history of knee jerk responses to management direction.

    Advice to Management

    Split off enterprise services as a separate self contained unit.
