I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Big name and stable customers and market. Great work environment.

Cons

Management is messed up. Not working from home policy is driving people crazy and showing some desperation from the management layer.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    One of the best things that this company have is the opportunity provided for personal care, it provides health insurance, a very nice gym, massage and nutritional professionals among other. The best thing I consider for working at this company is the work-life balance you have, it gives you the flexibility you need to do family activities.

    Cons

    Some of the challenges that I find in this company is the fact that it is very hard to get promoted if you are working with projects that give remote support. Training are short on line tutorials and are not drive towards professional career development. It doesn't give you the opportunity to do a post graduate degree.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management could be to start looking back at what was the company in the past, search for what management did to grow it to a point of glory at that time and begin to focus on that to bring the company back to those days of glory.


  2. "Average work Average experience"

    Pros

    Good people at peer level -- Flexibility in work and work at times

    Cons

    Firefight all the time - growth is not there - bad strategies and execution. Good if you just want to work status quo
