I worked at Hewlett-Packard as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Great team, everyone was helpful and really friendly. My managers were amazing and they made me feel comfortable, taught and took time to fully explain to me how my work contributes to HP

There are also a lot of volunteering opportunities for social responsibility and innovation
Co-ops can work from home once a week which was great for people who had to commute far.
Flexible hours

Cons

Although being very proactive and asking for work, Managers has a high work load and may be too busy to train and give interns work. This however depends on the department.

Caf has a limited variety of food.

Advice to Management

HR should create more Co-op/intern social activities within HP or with other companies in the Business area.
However, Young Employee Networking was very helpful too. They provided mentor programs but I was a bit gutted that I couldn't join as many of these programs lasts a year, whereas most co-ops stay for only 4 - 8 months.

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

    Pros

    flexible working hour where sometimes can work from home, free learning tutorials and also professional certification courses will be provided time to time, work life balance

    Cons

    bad management due to wrong acquisition decision, low increment and not even to say about the bonus, too many workers yet so little parking places and also small cubicle spaces

    Advice to Management

    focus more on how to improve the efficiency and productivity instead of keep cutting cost on services or revoke those useful tools, cut away those business that bring loss..
