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

Pros

Great peers, great workstations and debuggers, and get to work on great products.

Getting to be demands to support conference calls early and late to support engineers at other sites around the world.

Advice to Management

HP way had it right. Don't try to scrap it, or improve on it. This "HP way now" is an insult to the original.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility of work/life balance. I do work lots of hours but i can be flexible about when those hours are worked. If i want to attend a kid activity during the day i don't feel guilty. I just make sure i work late and get whats needed to be done, done.

    Cons

    HP is so big, not many people know whats going on and people are scared to make a decision that might get them fired. Its not like the old days were productive risk taking was encouraged. This is more noticalbe in the US where HP is cutting employees, most are just trying to hand on and not rock the boat.

    Advice to Management

    low cost location does not trnaslate to the same quality of work.
