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

Pros

People are respected and given responsibility. I worked on interesting projects and with very smart people. Lot of opportunities to learn new skills. Competitive salary and benefits.

Cons

In recent years cut backs to R&D have caused a lot of the innovation to stop. A lot of good people left or were let go.

Advice to Management

Invest in R&D. Don't try to be IBM. Get out of commodity businesses.

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

    Pros

    Entry level positions for recent college graduates
    Relaxed environment
    Intelligent and competent coworkers

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to similar positions at other locations
    Have to stay for many years to advance
    Upper management not in tune with employees
    Structured processes may limit out of the box thinkers

    Advice to Management

    Grow and retain talent by offering higher pay and more incentives to do well. Offer more training and development for employees. Don't place so much emphasis on obtaining certain certifications in order to move up.
