I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Stable company, great to work within a business unit. Flexible work environment. Availability of knowledge banks. The new CEO Meg Whitman is trying to really turning the ship around in the right direction.

Cons

Working across business units / divisions is cumbersome. Approval levels slow down progress in any matter. Very risk averse culture - even reasonable risk. Pay is mediocre at best.

Advice to Management

Need to be agile and willing to take calculated risks to compete in the market space.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    As an intern, there were always other on the team I was assigned to willing to help me learn the ropes and figure things out. Everyone was very helpful and easy to work with.

    Cons

    I never got to work on any meaningful projects (not surprising as an intern) and if I didn't accomplish anything it didn't matter because no one seemed to care about the pace I worked.


  2. "Rapidly changing environment with much potential."

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

    Pros

    Exciting work, some very nice people for co-workers.

    Cons

    As in all companies, HP has its share of political players, who tend to rule in favor of how a program will benefit themselves, rather than the company.

    Advice to Management

    Look beyond what your directors are telling you, step-into sidebar meetings that are being conducted by program and product management leaders and listen to what's really going on.
