    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.

    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.

    Pros

    Great position for building sales experience, industry knowledge, around the industry's best solutions. Exposure to multiple venues throughout the company and with partners.

    Cons

    Lack of recognition in some cases. Feel there can be better incentives considering the initial process starts at this level. There should also be more involvement with other business units

    Pros

    Great Pay & Benefits
    Company Structure
    Ability to move up
    Work life balance
    Allowed to think outside the box to resolve issues
    Great work environment

    *The people who ran the site I worked at were EXCELLENT, and we would still have our jobs if it was up to to them, but corporate is awful!*

    Cons

    Always the last to find out about changes
    Unreasonable expectations

    Advice to Management

    Quality BEFORE quantity. Every single day I had to fix issues made by overseas employees. They don't know what they are doing nor do they care. Customers do not like speaking to people they can't understand and customer service is everything nowdays. I'd be surprised if HP lasts another 10 years.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some of the pros are willingness to help with personal growth, promotions, time-off policies, benefits, culture within the career development area as well as support from peers. That is always a nice thing to have in an office - collaboration is key!

    Cons

    I would have to say there have been limited perks for trips, etc. given that some of my peers get to travel and take incentive trips.

    Advice to Management

    If we can sweeten up compensation packages and develop a management track, that would be ideal. Otherwise, I am happy working at HP.

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

    Pros

    There are many departments and most people progress to next level sales positions both inside and outside the company. Work-life balance is the best of any company I have worked for. Do your 40 hours and no one bothers you outside of work. Time-off is adequate, and most of the time you can go to appointments (doctors, etc) on the clock as long as its not excessive. The also allow time on the clock for volunteer work and there are lots of activities within the company itself. Great work environment.

    Cons

    Its a call center mostly, be prepared to make hundreds of calls per day. There is also tons of turn over in both the sales teams and management. That's good if you don't like who you are working with right now, but there is little consistency. Job security can be an issue, they will use the HP downsize as an excuse to fire someone. They literally will cut someone loose for "downsizing" and hire two more in their place the next week.

    Advice to Management

    Give incentives to stay with the team and build a lasting unit. Address the turn over rate.
