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

Pros

Wonderful place to learn, grow and leave.

Cons

Career advancements need to happen outside of the company. If advancements are offered and accepted, HR will not match the pay to the current market value or even an internal pay scale.

Advice to Management

Learn to act like a startup again. Create pockets of innovation that are not mired in the corporate bureaucracy that hinders current growth and get back to the core DNA that was infused into "The HP Way".

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great employees, very smart people, some flexibility in when you work your hours if you get your job done (see WW comment below), people doing the day-to-day work still retain an incredible passion for doing the right thing for the business

    Cons

    Management's behaviors do not align with their words, creating enormous amounts of distrust. Shift in management actions is resulting in short-term decisions with short-term payoffs with disregard for med-long term thinking. I've witnessed this being discussed openly on multiple occasions and then simply ignored. Definitely a worldwide company; be prepared to be on 6 am calls with Europe and 9 pm calls with India if people you work with are located there.

    Advice to Management

    Need to improve trust in order to get this back to being a great company. If there is bad news, talk about it openly - employees can handle it. Saying everything is good and laying people off creates incredible amounts of distrust.
