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

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

    Pros

    The people you work with are very nice people and civilized. Despite having different ideas, you can usually settle down to a compromise so long as you do not provoke them.

    Cons

    For a technology company, it is massive and so it is difficult to scale technology and keep up with the latest technology trend internally so you end up so times working with age old technology.
