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

Pros

None. They bought our company and destroyed it. They didn't care about customers and cared less about employees.

The only "pro" is that HP have purchased us and everything is better. It was almost an immediate turn around in terms of message. Focus is back on customer satisfaction and it's very clear that employees are considered valuable again.

Everything

Cons

I was always proud of how much my company cared about our customers and employees and then Autonomy bought us. They clearly didn't care about our customers at all. Everything was about "new license revenue". So sorry if you were already a customer.

They treated employees like a commodity that could be replaced on a whim. It was truly a terrible few years until HP purchased us and saved us from the horrible policies and behaviour of Autonomy.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great environment, excellent coworkers, in some projects you can work from home. You will learn new stuff. Great learning tools.

    Cons

    Very difficult to be promoted. Even if they have open positions for the next level, they hire external candidates instead of start looking inside first.

    Advice to Management

    Promote internal candidates for the new positions.
