Current Employee - IT Project Manager in Cincinnati, OH (US)

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

The company is very supportive of working at home. This means one can work almost anywhere in the country and that is quite helpful.

Cons

The pay raises were few and far between over the course of the last seven years. This made working for HP a bit less salary competitive.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an 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.
