    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    Pros

    There were diverse business and technology areas to work in at HP.

    Cons

    HP has the business strategy of the month syndrome. When one strategy does not deliver against the numbers quoted to the analysts senior management just moves on to the next one. There is absolutely no value placed on the employees, contrary to what is proclaimed. People are subject to arbitrary changes (like forced co-location, pay offs) with no concern about the impact.

    Advice to Management

    Start valuing employees! Develop sound business strategies instead of short term bandaids.

    Pros

    The CEO is really working to make HP a true industry leader in tech innovation. My co-workers are smart, dedicated and always willing to assist each other. Career growth and personal growth are recognized as going hand-in-hand and highly encouraged.

    Cons

    This is a flat organizational structure and as a result promotions and advancement are rare. Salaries are low compared to some other local IT shops but the benefits are great.

    Pros

    You can work from home

    Cons

    They do not promote from within. Management frequently raves about new managers brought in from outside the company, as if nobody within the company could have filled the role. Which makes sense, they do not develop personnel. Travel and training were eliminated to reduce costs. All salaries were cut 10% to make numbers which enabled Senior Management to receive over $100 million in bonuses. Cutting 50,000 jobs over 2 year period. Wrote off $8 billion in bad investments in 2 successive quarters.

    Advice to Management

    value Employees.

    Pros

    Not micromanaged. Left alone to do my job.

    Cons

    Constant Re-organization.
    Always getting new accounts
    Role changing before getting the opportunity to succeed
    reactive management structure
    Stopped investing in R&D under Mark Heard and fell behind in innovation.

    Advice to Management

    Allow re-orgs the chance to succeed before mixing it up again every 6-9 months. Invest in R&D and innovation for the long term. Drive a true-sales culture.
