I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

Pros

The company is huge and if you are willing to work the system and are patient you can probably get a good situation. You will occasionally have to put up with mind boggling inefficiencies, but that's where the patience comes in. It is the company where a lot of the things that make silicon valley what it is started.

Cons

It's huge! Getting things done is difficult. There are a lot of people involved in every activity no matter how big or small. corporate speak, buzz words, TPS reports with cover sheets.

Advice to Management

I have sympathy for those in upper management at HP. It seems choatic and out of control

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

    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities if you know were to look and you build a network of peers. Opportunities are there to be taken

    Cons

    The company is very large, being part of large Matrix organizations you can get lost in the shuffle and the size of the organization

    Advice to Management

    Need to reduce the number of emplyees to managers, they try to do the best they can with the large organizations but there are some casulties of good employees, maybe a better peer program would assist.
