Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good Salary
Work-life balance
Nice laptop (So they should)

Cons

Benefits (Particularly Medical) are better at other large companies and smaller companies
Many employees are there to get a pay check and do not much else
"Can Do" attitude doesn't exist and if you have it, you feel like you continually have to bash your head against a wall
Terrible, expensive food options

Advice to Management

Keep clearing out and laying off "expired" employees
Make the company attractive to work at and then re-employ top talent

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

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, ability to work from home, although they are tightening up rules around that now in 2014. Lots of career opportunity. There are so many opportunities avilable to you once you get here. Management does really seem to care about their people.

    Cons

    Get in at the highest salary you can. Once you get here, it's hard to get any kind of a major increase even with a promotion. They really only do small increases for promotions and even smaller (right now anyway) for end of the year/performance reviews. Don't be afraid to ask for higher than what you think they'll pay. The least they'll do is say 'we can't pay that, but we can pay.....' and then they'll tell you the highest they can go.
