    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with a truly wonderful team in the summer after my freshman year of college. My manager was very adept at leading, knowing when to give people their space and when to push them to perform. I was also assigned a mentor who took such an active and positive role in my education, always answering my never-ending stream of questions enthusiastically and cheerfully. I learned such an unbelievable amount from him. Looking back, I really think that almost all of my time that summer was spent doing things that meaningfully improved my knowledge of computer science.

    Cons

    Our team was often changing focus because of uncertainty in at the highest levels of management, so it was sometimes difficult to find projects for me to work on. But I believe my team made a real effort to keep my busy with meaningful work.

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

    Pros

    Easy corporate job, descent benefits like all other IT corporations, relaxed hours,

    Cons

    Nepotism, corruption among all mid and high level executives, slow pace, no innovation and creativity, unqualified, outdated, and old staff

    Advice to Management

    Investigate all your executives (Dir and higher) for corruption, audit for nepotism, travel, raise and bonus allocations, and all third party contracts. Your company runs like an old school corrupt government! Your executives are all bribed and bought out by outside companies hoping to do business with HP.
