I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

Pros

HP has some of the best HR technology in the industry. There are many remote workers and HR functions can be managed 100% remotely with no physical presence required. IT professionals enjoy working with latest technology and online training is excellent.

Cons

Often politics gets in the way of quality management. HP has ethics standards, but front-end managers sometimes work on the very edge of them or intimidate subordinates into possible violations. Unrealistic project schedules are common, and task estimates received from subordinates are often arbitrarily modified by the project management team without discussion. Be prepared to have tough skin.

Advice to Management

Better communication between matrix-ed managers would help morale and increase efficiency. Cost overruns can be avoided only by taking estimates submitted by non-management IT professionals more seriously. Instead of trying to fit the project estimates into pre-planned templates, use a more interactive agile model to develop sensible project estimates that team members believe they can meet before the project begins, then modify those estimates periodically based on observed progress.

    Pay is low, no additional compensation for taking on additional job responsibilities (agent to lead transitions).
