I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

People you work with are great. I have built some long lasting relationships.

Cons

Don't expect to get a raise without fighting for it. Any training you take will not be approved unless it relates to your current position.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The stock holders pay your check but the people in the trenches are the ones building the networks, servers and workstations that make the stock go up. So please remember us when you get a big bonus.

    Grew personally as a sales professional but lack of clear direction hurt business growth.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A great group of people to work with in a team selling environment. People love the company and are willing to put in the hours to help win new client logos or expand existing business relationships.

    Cons

    Management was focused on cutting costs. R&D was greatly impacted by this lack of long term vision and now HP trails many of their competitors and are in declining markets they once led (see Tablet growth vs. declining PC sales). Have focused way too much on hardware and have let Software/Services trail other key competitors (see IBM).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has lost direction, employee morale is at it lowest levels and you need to get back to listening to the field as well as your largest clients.
