I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Absolute best thing about HP Fort Collins is the flexible work hours.

People working there will vary from team to team, but if you find the right manager your experience will be amazing.

Company is working to hire younger employees.

Cons

Company is entrenched with typical corporate habits. That is to say they have a team of actuaries who determine if we give X$ as a bonus, and Y% raises we will keep Z% of our employees where Z is some percent of all employees minus n% turnover where n is some percent some study turned up as the proper percent a company the size of HP should have.

Upper management is handcuffed by thinking of elder generations. This results in a large backlog of older employees due for promotion while younger employees must get in line. This leads to large scale turnover of younger employees.

Advice to Management

Higher younger people into true positions of power that are able to challenge the status quo.
