I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time

Pros

flexible work hours, good salary, and intelligent colleagues. Looking to the "HP Way" is good for the culture and keeps stress minimal.

Cons

unclear vision from the top, insecurity about long-term support of Labs projects. A sense that a lot of the IP developed is licensed to partners rather than providing a path for HP itself to develop its own full-stack products.

Advice to Management

Be clear about long-term support of Labs projects

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

    Pros

    There are a couple of accounts in OKC. Both at Shepherd Mall. On the OSEEGIB account most of the positions aside from the customer service dept. have nice daytime hours Monday-Friday. Managers/Supervisors, at least mine, are flexible and will work with you as far as appts, children issues, etc. Lots of extra money to be made with the constant OT.

    Cons

    Pay raises and bonuses are few and far between. Never ending overtime(positive and negative). 1 year and counting as of this review. The pay from person to person is varies greatly. A person with no relative experience/education can start with wage several dollars higher than a person with either of the aforementioned qualifications. Bonuses are seemingly randomly dolled out as well. Don't expect to to advance within the company.

    Advice to Management

    Reward ALL employees who have earned it. Compensate employees fairly.


  2. "Employee friendly company"

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to work with very talented people and a great management team. This company is probably one of the best places to work.

    Cons

    Sometimes globally dispersed teams can be challenging in terms of team meetings. However, this can also act as a great asset because one can have 24x7 development.

    Advice to Management

    Doing a good job. Just keep up the good work
