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

Pros

Great products, good life-work balance, good pay

Cons

Weak mid-level managers and poor direction from top management. Every six months you are wondering if you will have a job due to restructuring and attempts to "mask" or mislead financials. Hiring "B" level staff to lower costs. Always chasing your compensation...if you can even figure out how you are paid each half.

Advice to Management

Provide clear direction and stick with it for longer than six months. Stop operating in the "gray"

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really loved the environment and people at Hewlett Packard, It was definitely my dream job so I thought. The executives were very nice and made you feel very welcome.

    Cons

    The salary was very low for the position they hired me for, which was a Software Developer . With little training, I was eventually contracted out to one of their clients doing something completely different and working with the company Executives with no raise at all.

    Advice to Management

    More training on the position the employee will work in is needed instead of the company history. Training on Outlook and other Windows products is desirable since they are used daily at the company and better pay would keep the turn around rate lower.
