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

    Pros

    Best job ever for someone who is looking to work 17 to 20 hours a week. They are super flexible with schedules and you work mostly weekends, worked perfectly for me since I am a college student.

    Cons

    Not a lot of hours. However, they are very clear it is a weekend job and they will not give you more than 20 hours per week. I do not have anything to complain about them so far.

    Advice to Management

    Better training when you are first hired. This is a job where you make your own schedule, learn on your own, and its up to you to be on time and what not.

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

    Pros

    The main site was in Brooklyn, NY. That meant the site I worked for (in another state) had no on-site supervision.

    Cons

    Just about everything else...The organization was not thete, they rate of pay did not commiserate with the amount of work, and office politics trumped everything else. There was no professionalism, no training, etc. It was a HR nightmare!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Please re-work the whole system and cut out the cancerous management. Organization and sound policies that are followed consistently help everyone. Especially employees!!! Employers forget that more often than not-you get what you pay for....Pay employees less, you get less. That includes quality of work and loyalty. That affects your bottom line.

    Great company with great people. Every day I learn something new about technology. Great pay and benefits. Opportunities for advancement.

    Hiring process is very tedious. Some people aren't qualified to be doing their jobs but they have that in every company.

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

    Pros

    Location, culture, financially stable, location

    Cons

    Job Out-sourcing, lack of innovation, rewards mediocracy

    Advice to Management

    After spending 25 years with the company, it was heart-breaking to watch management deliberately strip areas of innovation and excellence and work hard to ship jobs overseas to chase the short-term investor approval.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Talented co-workers, international customers, interesting technology

    Cons

    I was a first line engineering manager with 12 reports. Company is driven by short term share price. There is little regard for individual employee talents and only lip service to customers. I was explicitly told by my section leader that the order of importance was:

    1) Shareholder value
    2) Customer growth and retention
    3) Employees

    My team was handed layoff notices and had two months to train our replacements in India or risk losing severance. No joke.

    Every few months I would receive a bulk email from the CEO encouraging my involvement in a PAC which supported the interested of the corporation.

    Advice to Management

    Saving my breath, they won't listen.
