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

Pros

HP has a great work life balance with understanding challenges with kids, doctor appts. You can leave the office for doctor/dentist appt without taking time off. Benefits are good.

Cons

Life at HP is changing. No more working at home. Meg wants everyone in the office but with the eventual move to Palo Alto there isn't enough space. So 70% of people will have cubes and the others will find a focus booth. Does not make sense if the reason to have everyone in is to collaborate.

No pay increase with a job promotion. Pay is not competitive with other companies.

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

    Pros

    I love HP, I have learned so much and been allowed to give in so many different ways. In the 30 years that I have been part of HP I have been given many challenges, often rewarding and sometimes frustrating but they always helped me grow.

    Cons

    The move from the old HP way to the current semblance of the HP way. When HP moved from company profit sharing to variable performance bonus the concept of TEAM seemed to leave HP. People became more self-centered and less group-centered.

    Advice to Management

    Constant fear of workforce reductions is not healthy for the company, it tends to demotivate some people. Also bring back company profit sharing. It promotes a concept of Team that we need to embrace to be successful.
