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

Pros

fun place to work, lots of perks, very loose management

Cons

The culture is to have fun. The eval is depending on the popularity.

Advice to Management

The employees have too much freedom, and too few reasons to work hard. Eval is depending on popularity contest.

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

    Pros

    I work for a global business unit where there are tons of smart seasoned professionals to work with and to learn from by doing; people ensure everyone keeps and delivers the highest standard of work while performing in a highly complex global matrix organization.

    Cons

    All the management and strategic changes the company went through over the last decade has left a good number of bureaucrats in multiple decision making positions that compromise their team members results and company results by playing a closed guard personal agenda.

    Expressing disagreement or alternative and more effective ways of building and implementing strategy is frequently met with painful consequences, from your immediate manager, that could seriously hurt your career and slow down your growth withing the company.

    Advice to Management

    Meg is doing a fantastic job that is starting to be reflected in the markets and noticed by customers. However, the company still has a long way to go until high-level managers align under a company wide mindset that leverages people's talent and creates a first class working environment.
