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

Pros

Depending on the group you work for, there is flexibility in your schedule for personal needs. The company has stabilized in its work force, and there is a renewed company wide effort at recognizing performance and rewarding loyalty, creativity and those who go above and beyond.

Cons

The company is enormous and there are still a lot of little kingdoms and bureaucratic nightmares that pop up. There are far too many processes that take longer to to complete than the work you are asking to get done.

Advice to Management

Release the reins a little bit. The trend has been consolidating decisions higher and higher up the chain. The effect is that, for example, a PO to purchase equipment that has been contracted and paid for by a customer regularly takes over 60 days. The order is quick from the factory, but the approval process for the ORC and PO is detrimental to business.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay, good benefits and some of accounts have great leadership.

    Cons

    Too much politics, there is no way you can get work done in some of the accounts, no wonder they are so many red accounts. Some of bad apples are recycled from one account to another instead of letting them go.


  2. "good place for begginers"
