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

Pros

HP does provide lots of vacation time and is great about illness. Many peple work from home. The company seems to be stable.

Cons

Managers are islands of their own rules. Shifts can be changed with no notice or care of impact to personal lives and families. Every team/group gets handled by a very small set of people and they decide all the rules for that particular team.

Advice to Management

Care more about your players. Dont let your team leads hide what is really going on from you. Talk to your people so you know how they feel. NEVER let a team lead do a yearly review.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are great and very hard to beat, unlimited sick days and very affordable insurance. However, that is were the good stuff ends.

    Cons

    The company seems to take an approach to management that rewards those who belittle their employees and promotes an atmosphere of fear and discontent. Many of managers even attempt to do the same to each other, and engage in strong arm match in front of employees.

    Advice to Management

    Fire those managers that have created this environment of fear and hostility, and provide training that will encourage an environment of cooperation and respect. You might be able retain employees for longer then just a couple of months.

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

    Pros

    Some great projects are available, and there are truly some great people. The brand will impress your aunts and uncles.

    Cons

    Relentless deep cuts and the shifting of significant costs onto employees pitched as benefits. If you tune into the big picture (and how can you not with the constant cuts and years of bad news) it will feel like you're losing even if you are on a successful, satisfying project.
