I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Work with talented engineers and employees who are passionate.

Cons

Even good engineers not in the good ol' boy's club get put into the wrong side of the bell curve. Bad management continues to plague this company.

Advice to Management

Replace the "forced distribution system" or whatever you call it now. It's still FDS.

    Pros

    The people you meet at HP are generally great people. There is still some work / life flexibility.

    Cons

    Where to start? Lower pay than industry standard. Not much alignment among upper management on goals and directions. Impossible performance goals, especially lately. Lots of layoffs but additional work load still expected to get done with remaining teams. Somewhat toxic management environment. Management will push you to work long hours to get the sheer volume of work completed, and many times this means working weekends. Have to be on call during vacations. Not the best place to work if you have a young family and want to spend time with them.

    Advice to Management

    Get better aligned and create clear, obtainable goals for employees
