I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

-Great work experience: this was my first job out of college
-Job flexibility: even though work from home has been scaled back

Cons

-Pay

Really, the only aspect of HP that drove me nuts was the compensation. I accepted an offer 20% under market value for my position (I needed a job out of college...). In 3 years time, I only received one raise to the equivalent of $1,000 with a couple bonuses mixed in here and there. Most others on the team didn't receive any raises during that time. I recently accepted another job that bumped me up 62% in pay.....to help me reach my market value. That is how poorly HP was paying me...

Also, due to the recent workforce reductions, HR fights to the death any kind of promotion and/or raise attempts by managers.

Advice to Management

Start paying people what every....other....company.....pays.

    "Not what it used to be, only continuing to decline"

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is a good learning ground in many fronts - technical, business cases (many of what not to do), variety of industries covered, etc. Diverse workforce.

    Cons

    Below industry standards of salary for majority, declining quality, rotating workforce, constant reorganization, HUGE lack of quality management (thus all the prior items)

    Advice to Management

    The mentality that "people are replaceable and interchangeable assets", the international outsourcing of everything, and the lack of quality leaders throughout the deep hierarchy, has left a very un-loyal, un-motivated, less efficient, less effective workforce that is costing you and your customers TONS. I'm sure Bill and Dave are rolling over in disgust and disappointment.
