I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for 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.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Work life balance - able to work from home, flexible working hours as long as work is done.
    Reputable mnc - good for your resume.
    Flexi credit - able to convert into cash.
    Usually good direct manager - care for your personal well-begin.

    Cons

    Poor pay benefits - pay freeze, low bonus payout, rare salary adjustment.
    Cost cutting - cut transport allowance
    Encourage employee to purchase HP product - only willing to give a $100 discount for laptop and desktop.
    Training - only web based training, no live training due to cost cutting.
    Measurement matrix - ridiculous lots of measurements that engineer has. Employees are not robots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More support from the board.
    Respect employees as an asset not a cost cutting tools.
    Stop buying useless companies at over prices level.
    As a hardware company, we need to innovate and build an eco system like apple. (Look at iphone 5, lousy product upgrade but look at the queues)
