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.


  2. "Overall good experience. Great company to work for if you are prepared to work 16 hours a day."

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The great reputation of the brand. Good engineering talent and passion for the products.

    Cons

    The constant change in strategy. The frustration of knowing that the products are good but the execution continues to be poor. Not much room to move up once you reach a Director level.

    Advice to Management

    Return to the roots: good engineering, great products, treat people well and don't overwork the teams.
