I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Flexible work hours that contribute to a healthy work and life balance, while giving growth opportunities to work with cultures worldwide.

Cons

Frequent workforce reductions that keep impacted personnel at hiring salary for years if rehired; managers who blame poor business results on ever-changing strategies instead of their own lack of leadership; and lack of ethnic minorities in management roles in the United States.

Advice to Management

Improve upward mobility for loyal and productive employees. Hire people for leadership roles who understand HP culture, processes, and are loyal before hiring from the outside. Don't punish the introvert who contributes more to revenue and innovation than the extrovert who always throws responsibility over the fence and seeks attention for self only.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    For a Services Business Development role HP provides enormous flexibility in performing your task. Significant opportunities to cross-sell services in a huge number of mature HP relationships. Leveraging these relationships can get you your numbers.

    Cons

    Very risk averse as a result of which it loses business to more nimble competitors in the services business. Have to deal with a lot of individual fiefdoms and navigate your way to gain access. Serious lack of communication across multiple service lines which often results in paving entry of competition.
