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

Pros

Great benefits, great culture, abundance opportunities

Cons

Unrealistic metrics at times, decisions are often made without doing enough research

Advice to Management

Offshoring may make short term financial gains but will cost a lot of future revenue. Stateside support may cost more, but you get what you pay for!

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

    Pros

    The latest management is working hard to correct the problems created by the previous short term focused management teams. Rational behavior is coming back and truely valuing the workforce is emerging. It is a large company that provides opportunities in a wide variety of areas and enables one to explore career opportunities in areas that are not necessarily the focus of one's education.

    It varies from manager to manager but generally teams pull together and work to make all the members successful.

    Cons

    High overhead decision making. Mid and lower management are not well empowered to make key decisions. There is a tendency to overestimate deliveries and underestimate time needed to complete them.

    Advice to Management

    Allow your middle management to make decisions again.

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to contribute to expanding business.

    Cons

    Movement is stagnant inside the company (Enterprise Services). Lateral transfer is best option.

    Advice to Management

    Trim the fat. Lazy workers are in it for the paycheck and don't look to improve anything.
