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

    Pros

    Great technology that was one of the main considerations for joining HP. Well recognized brand that I thought would help build out my resume and experience level. Worked with a great extended HP team on a large Distributor.

    Cons

    Started at the wrong time 1 week before Hurd left. The next 2 years were in disarray with multiple CEO changes and management turnover. Large company was difficult to navigate.

    Pros

    Great dedicated people that are very passionate and intelligent. Many long term employees with great knowledge.

    Cons

    Hewlett Packard has, and continues to go through nearly constant transition as they struggle to compete and stay relevant. Lack of investment in development over years has hampered growth. Not allowed to work remotely any longer. Work life balance.

    Pros

    CEO has changed the direction and outlook of the company making it a positive work environment.

    HP is such a large company that business segments are still very independent of each other making it challenging to work through the bureaucracy.

    Pros

    HP has fought through hard times in the recent years however the company has remained a key player in the technology field. With hard times come hard decision however HP has remained loyal to its workers that have built this company.

    Cons

    Sometimes HP can lose sight of the individual, however when you have 300,000 plus employees worldwide that can happen.
