A typical large company... Lots of opportunities and lots of bureaucracy.

Software Designer VI (Current Employee)
Cupertino, CA (US)

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

ProsGood opportunities for career growth. In my experience, managers allow and encourage job changes into new areas. There is a Technical Career Path that provides a path for technical people to move up without having to move into management. Lately they've been encouraging mentoring and different ways to share information across divisions.

ConsHP is a huge company and is full of annoying bureaucracies. If bureaucracy drives you nuts then don't work for a huge company. If the work you do and the people you work with are more important then HP is a fine place to work and there are lots of opportunities in a large company.

Excellent Place to Start a Career

Presales Consultant (Current Employee)
Rio Rancho, NM (US)

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard


Pros: Hewlett-Packard is an excellent place to start a career. Considering it's size, you are presented with the opportunity to move up in the company,… Cons: Some of the pros are also cons. Due to its size, it takes a long time to find information or to get things done.… Advice to Senior Management: KISS. Keep It Simple Stupid. Because of its size I know many things can't be simplified, but try to ensure decisions are made… Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend More
