I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a year

Pros

Great talent, great people to work with. Depending on the team and the technology, it can be a fun place to work.

Cons

Too much middle management, to big of a company, unable to react to the market, underpaid. Unable to decide what it wants to focus on. Annual reviews needs improvement and little to no guidance on how to position oneself for success. Little to no work life balance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your employees, practice what you preach. Provide a real career path to your employees without it being in Management. There is too much of a buddy system, if you not part of it the path of success is limited. Evaluated purely based on numbers and not work ethic.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor for more than 3 years

    Pros

    HP manager respect their team members and support them. The team members support across functions and give their best. HP is a respected company, and backs up its products.

    Cons

    Accounting uses older technologies. The is little to no growth opportunities visible. Much of the institutional memory has been lost in down sizing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build more from within. Prove you respect the contributors that made HP great. Communicate vision to the entire teams.
