I have been working at Hewlett-Packard as an intern (More than a year)

Pros

Life/work balance is good. My manager is really nice and rewards his employees with dinners for their hard work. There are health plans available. Holidays are paid time off.

Cons

It takes a while to transition into HP. I was not able to login into HP corporate network until a week after I was hired. That was my only negative experience.

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

    Pros

    The services side of HP is much like HP years ago. People work together, are motivated, smart and it's fun.

    Cons

    HP is in the process of reducing it's workforce and will for some time. They need to figure out where they fit in the world of high-tech.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to be innovative and bring life back to your workforce.

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

    Pros

    Somehow, HP still has brand equity in certain sectors and certain parts of the world. Pockets of the real HP Way still exist.

    Cons

    Compensation is strictly middle-of-the-road. The only way to get a significant correction is to leave and come back. Product-based company, rather than solutions-based. Leaders brought in from the outside that have no clue as to how to deliver the services they are supposedly managing, then leave after a short time. No loyalty.

    Advice to Management

    Take stock of the vast resources you have at your disposal and develop go to market solutions that no other company on Earth can offer. Crush fiefdoms and replace with leaders that believe the whole is much greater than the sub of the parts.
