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

    Pros

    Great environment to learn how to operate independently and as a teammate. HP is tops in the IT world and treats its employees pretty good.

    Cons

    Layoffs. If you don't produce or fit in the image of HP, you're on your way out. They'll give you a chance but if you don't hit your numbers, that's it.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved my job and got a lot of great experience. I traveled to some great places for work and was paid well. I had great co-workers.

    Cons

    HPE changes direction every year. They would lay off thousands of people at a time. It's hard to rest at night when you're worried you may be a part of the next round of lay offs.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with one direction for longer than a year. Meg should do what's right for the business, not just the stock holders and her own financial interests.

    Hewlett Packard has an excellent training program. Associates are given the opportunity to advice in the company with continuous education.

    Pros

    HP was a great company to work for. The environment, benefits, compensation, etc were great. In fact, they were far superior to anything in the state.

    Cons

    They expect employees to be loyal to the company but do not return the loyalty. They are notorious in trying to fix balance sheet issues with layoffs. The majority of the reason they have balance sheet issues is because of being slow to market, using inferior parts in their products but probably the largest reason is because their design teams cannot create a lasting product.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on the real reason behind the balance sheet issues instead of trying to fix it by getting rid of your greatest asset...your people.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Tried to get employed by HP for a long time. I finally landed an interview, and I am excited! This is a great opportunity for me.

    Cons

    Hopefully I can do everything that is required of me in regards to the position in which I am interested in.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not hesitate in giving directions to your employees, and follow up on the topic to ensure that the employee not only understands what is required of them, but that they are actually implementing the directives as instructed.
