    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Used to have good work life balance, Good vacation time, Decent discounts on everyday computing products, Decent 401k matching, Company travel was good, Annual trip at a nice resort locations

    Cons

    Outrageous delivery deadlines due to salespeople over-promising just to win bids. The company culture rewards short term gains but overlooks long term relationships. Consistently over-promised and failed to deliver causing fractured relationships.

    Salary cuts during the downturn alienated lot of people. They reduced health benefits and 401k matching too (lot of big companies still are doing this though).

    Very little opportunities for growth. You are pigeon-holed in your role and lot of times they just won't have the roles that you want to perform.

    Their offshore units in India are HUGE drag on overall execution of any initiative. We constantly came across many many individuals who lacked even the basics of software development process. The offshore staff in software and services unit were tool jockeys. They knew what buttons do what in a given software, but they completely lacked design, communication and foundational skills in computing.

    Advice to Management

    Reward your employees better by providing multiple avenues to challenge themselves.
    This will improve their career and your company's execution resulting in higher revenues. Use these new revenue streams to compensate your employees with higher salary and bonus. This will lead to satisfied employees not only in terms of their wealth but career path and achievement.
