I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

HP is one of the great, iconic companies in Silicon Valley and around the world. With Meg Whitman at the helm, the company is finally getting back its spirit and culture.

I love coming to work with such brilliant, passionate people every day. There's a renewed focus on customers, employees, innovation, and quality products, and it shows.

Leaders seem to be inspired and working from the same playbook, following through on the commitments they make.

Cons

There's a long history of poor management and sprawl to overcome, and it's a lot of work to get the company on track.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work, and the focus on being "One HP" rather than a collection of disconnected business units. Our current leadership team is doing a great job with communication and transparency with employees, customers, and the media. You have a team of amazing employees rooting for you and ready to contribute to this company's great story. Keep it up!

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

    Pros

    Large company with lots of room to move around
    Many areas will allow very flexible work arrangements eg working from home to various degrees depending on current management chain

    Cons

    Salaries aren't the highest
    There is a lot of emphasis on hiring in lower cost areas which makes it harder for folks in places like CA

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the momentum towards thinking of employees more as people and valuable resources than commodities.

    Pros

    Great products; great co-workers, lots of energy, innovative edge of technology, strength in customer care,

    Cons

    home and work life balance could be improved; constant changes in managements focus; always adding more work without increasing salary/job description, lower management needs improvement and training. Career paths could be sharpened to ensure individual growth opportunities are available.

    Advice to Management

    You have the best products, just need to focus more on individual contributers and lower level management should be more closely monitored.
