    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Paychecks are received on time
    - Work with good people
    - Somewhat flexible hours

    Cons

    - Moving jobs to lower cost locations (moving from less than 40% to 60%+)
    - Zero directions from leaders
    - Management in for the short-term
    - No career growth

    Advice to Management

    Advice to management would be a waste of time and effort. They seem to know all and do not listen to reality. A complete game of cutting costs and the expense of both clients and employees.

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

    Pros

    Incentives are great. But that's all.

    Cons

    The sales organization here at HP is very disorganized. 52 people got hired with me in June 2014. Now a year later, 20 people have left. They changed my territory 5 times in one year. And changed my role 3 times in a year along with my pay.

    Advice to Management

    Get organized.

    Pros

    The people are great to work with, and they really want to do their best.

    Cons

    Telecommute has been stripped, Layoffs are everywhere, company no longer has a vision, and existing personnel are now expected to work way over 40 and take on additional responsibilities with more and more personnel leaving or being laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about your people again. They made this company great, and now you treat them of less value than a printer....

    Exciting and fast paced environment with a friendly and helpful culture.

    Pros

    Loved the open environment, maybe particular to the Plano office. Had great events to bring the various finance departments together.

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for internal growth. I was on the opposite end of the acquisition and myself along with other in my group were let go. We all tried to interview and find positions within HP but were not able too.

    Advice to Management

    I think Meg is doing a fine job righting the ship from previous management decisions. Not sure I understand moving the Autonomy Bus Unit with Printers, but what do I know.

    Pros

    Good salary, brand name that everyone recognizes.

    Cons

    * Never ending work force reduction in the USA
    * Services employees are force 'migrated' to COE locations or risk losing jobs
    * Focus on increased offshoring puts US employees at risk
    * No raises for multiple years

    Advice to Management

    Never ending cost cutting is cutting in to muscle and bones of the company. To return to growth, Give employees some sense of stability, even if means taking some short term losses for few quarters. Morale is too low and all hyperbole around 'in it to win !' is not cutting it,
