I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time

Pros

Salaries are good, people are nice, resources are plentiful and Meg Whitman is brilliant.

Cons

HP's purchase of EDS seems to have had little effect on the company. They are still nursing 40-year-old products and seem to have no ability to develop modern software in my opinion.

Advice to Management

Develop or buy a small portfolio of modern off-the-shelf software you can slowly build out and market using up-to-date techniques as old, customized products die off.

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

    Pros

    Big company lots of opportunity if you want to change positions

    Cons

    Company is struggling to get stock prices up. I left with a lot of underwater stock options

    Advice to Management

    Keep trying - you are head in the right direction. Try and get there faster - get rid of the "that's the way we have always done it" vs. the ones that say, we should do this different.

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

    Pros

    You can spend an entire career at HP and not get stale. HP is involved in almost every aspect of technology, and in almost every part of the world. Plenty of opportunity to experience, learn and grow, although the culture varies significantly by department and location

    Cons

    HP tends to focus on the next quarter and is relatively risk averse. there is innovation, but it's within the confines of the mainstream. anything outside the mainstream is rejected quickly and for good reason, HP sales is designed to move run rate products through established sales channels. Performance management is unstructured, and more often than not, is a beauty contest.

    Advice to Management

    Think big, stop paying lip service to a "customer centric culture" and start holding people accountable.
