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

Pros

HP allows for a good work life balance. Maybe to much on the life.

Cons

HP engineering managers are not technical. This allows a lot of very bad ideas to be implemented.
It is very sales focused company. The message being repeated constantly is we have to meet the quarter.

Advice to Management

At this time, I see lower level HP organizations attempting to push technologies into places where they do not necessarily fit. This is mainly due to a lack of a winning strategy at a high level. HP needs develop a strategy and then feed into the divisions what products and features they need to implement to meet that strategy. This is what Cisco does and this is why they are kicking HP's butt.

    Pros

    Flexibility of work schedule (which may change as employees are being asked to go into the office)

    Cons

    Management does not motivate employees to perform well

    Advice to Management

    High performers at one time are no longer motivated to work as there is little to no recognition of work they are doing.
