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

    Pros

    Good people, Good PMO leadership at the TennCare account that HP runs for the state of Tennessee. Work/life balance

    Cons

    Client can be difficult and unreasonable at times. No opportunities for growth in Nashville. The account is very flat.

    Advice to Management

    Concentrate on adjusting metrics based on evolving variables. Old metrics cause employees to do work that doesn't provide values.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Working for HP has some great learning opportunities. There are some smart and hardworking people in this company. It will definitely help you become a more disciplined IT professional.

    Cons

    Toxic personalities don't seem to be truly dealt with. There are people who undeniably need to be fired (from the client's perspective and the account owner's), who don't seem to go anywhere. This is a by-product of how HP is organized.

    Culture is a big problem for HP. There are smart and hard working people at this company, but the mood and culture is downbeat. Teams within HP don't really work together, so much as cover themselves as best they can in case something goes south.

    Advice to Management

    You need to <b>fix your culture</b> and learn how to perpetually train your technical staff.

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

    Pros

    Got to play a lot of ping pong.

    Cons

    Our director began having us make cold calls; these never went well and were painful to make. They also started micro managing and had several of us log our time down to when we went to the bathroom.

    Advice to Management

    Cold calls = bad

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It used to be a stable, fun environment. Great employees, great opportunities. Good Working Environment.

    Cons

    HP bought our company in 2008, and the vast majority of the employees were dismissed by 2010, abruptly. The last time I knew, not one of my former employees have totally recovered financially from what happened.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees loyally. Give them hope and faith in their financial future. Get rid of the people who really are worthless. Train your management staff.

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

    Pros

    Lots of available online training. Exposure to new and latest technologies. Great people to work with.

    Cons

    Raises haven't been given in 4+ years for an already low salary. Individual client sites are run like little fiefdoms with no oversight from upper management. Capability managers don't seem to care what goes on and don't want to hear any negative reports.

    Advice to Management

    More oversight at client sites.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Awesome opportunities - big IT roles.
    Opportunity to work remotely
    Ability to do many different roles
    low travel requirements

    Cons

    Layoffs - lack of job security
    Inconsistent strategy for Enterprise services
    Hard to harness the strengths of the greater company on a particular account
    Sr. Leadership doesn't really understand services world - never properly incorporated the incredible strengths of EDS when they bought them.

    Advice to Management

    Either focus on how to be successful in Services - or spin it back off as a separate company.

    If only EDS could rise from the ashes.......

    Pros

    Good benefits and decent pay because its a large company, a good job when theres no other jobs available in the area

    Cons

    Poor management, no raises, unstable environment, i was doing as much work as others if not more, When management changed I was harassed into quitting, some if the people are very unstable including management

    Advice to Management

    Management should not be asking entry level employees how to improve work processes, management at this location needs to communicate more effectively
