I worked at Hewlett-Packard as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

When I was an intern at HP, I experienced a great level of day to day stability, low stress and manageable workload. The experience is comfortable and the compensation is fair. Excellent work-life balance, and I was given healthcare benefits even as an intern.

Cons

The experience may be a little too comfortable- I never felt pushed to demonstrate my full capabilities. It was easy to coast and get told that I was doing well. This may be just because I was an intern and not an FTE. Office culture seemed a little traditional too, and I felt out of place if I wasn't dressed in at least Business Casual.

Advice to Management

I did not get to interact too frequently with management, my manager worked at a different HP location. I was mostly left to just complete my work and submit it at infrequent intervals so I cannot comment.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    Pros

    work-life balance is great. I would even say it's a great company for new Mommies and retiring people:)

    Cons

    No career opportunities, business development is very very weak. Most projects are destined to fail from he start, because of the mid-level management. Those people are just securing financing for their deparments, not thinking to produce something valuable.
