Current Employee - Embedded Software Engineer in Vancouver, WA (US)

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

Pros

Flexible schedule, family friendly, wide range of opportunities, many opportunities for growth, amazing people. Our products are very cool, our process is very fast, it's amazing what we do on a daily basis. I really LOVE it here and everyone I work with!

Cons

Having a tough time with our rapid CEO cycling and direction changes. New site in Vancouver is rather cramped and difficult at times to really spread out.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think outside the box. We need to innovate new disruptive technologies. Printers and PCs have become commodity, smartphones and tablets are the new normal we need to think of new ways to cater to the new market. We need more patience and a longer attention span for developing new goods and services.

    Former Employee - Account Manager in Montreal, QC (Canada)
    Former Employee - Account Manager in Montreal, QC (Canada)

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

    Pros

    Unmatched portfolio of products and services. Clients and partners turn your calls. Good benefits. Ability to move into new positions and move internationally.

    Cons

    Annual downsizing exercises. Poor vision, and inability to execute. Very bureaucratic and lacks agility. Internal groups forget that the customer is the reason for their job. Success often comes in spite of the company, not because of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spin off the Print division, make the strong and significant investments into mobile (tablets and phones) and manage the secular decline of notebooks and PCs.
