I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Large company, so it has the clout to make large changes in the industry.

Cons

Because the stock market drives the company, changes are made with short term thinking involved.

Advice to Management

Think of the long term consequences of the decisions they are making.

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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. Strong company profile and job stability. Won't get acquired because they are the giant. Corporate perks like gold status at Hilton and discounted gyms.

    Cons

    Little internal support for training or job preparation. Huge company without any hint of lot of small team startup feel.

    Advice to Management

    Too many meetings and company-wide emails. Too many unnecessary distractions. Lack of proper training in my division.
