Pros

HP has a broad portfolio and operates in more countries than most other companies. If you enjoy operating at scale, this company offers great experience for those people willing to take charge of their careers, find new opportunities and rotate through different jobs and divisions.

Cons

The company is in the middle of a turnaround. Definitely need to feel comfortable with change and thrive in that kind of environment.

Advice to Management

Really like the culture since Meg Whitman joined the company and appreciate the HP Way Now values.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits beyond the normal health and vacation are quite welcome and useful. The option to buy into a better package is a plus. It appears to be a very ethical company, with honesty in relationship with customers being important. The manufacturing side produces very solid and reliable products. The layoffs that are happening are more thoughtful than expected.

    Cons

    It is a big company and so adjustments to meet financial targets don't take into account the specific demands of the groups doing the work nor is the workload adjusted even while the workforce reduced. Things move slowly due to the cumbersome nature of being very large. Too much authority is assigned to your direct management chain so that if you have a major dispute with your boss, there isn't much you can do about other than quit of live with it. There are a lot of online training for policies that are basically time wasters.

    Advice to Management

    The various groups putting out training/online reviews of policies would make better use of employee time by getting together and creating a comprehensive coverage that we only have to take once. It is very difficult to find the resources needed through the company portal - the content should be better presented. It would be nice if there was a clear, cohesive strategy showing how all the parts fit together that was communicated to regular employees. Too much of the executive communications is around "making the next sale".
