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

Pros

Advantages of a large company such as good benefits and enough resources to support the work. Good policy allowing for moving to another position within the company.

Cons

Too much bureaucracy. Not enough communication. Too much emphasis on profitability and growth. Too much time spent tracking time. Salary freezes and downsizing when things aren't going well.

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

    Pros

    Not much other than like most people, thankful to have a job.

    Cons

    Very low morale and the company does not seem to care. Feels like just a matter of time until your laid off or your job is sent overseas. They do not fill vacant positions so you end up doing your job and another persons. No raises, no bonus' etc.. Sorry for the bleak picture, but it is just the truth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management, quit worrying about the stock prices and your big fat bonus' (How much $$ do you really need!). Show a little loyalty to the country where the company was founded and the American employee instead of getting the cheapest labor you can find !

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

    Pros

    good individual people who mean well

    Cons

    HP Software has some of the worst management I have seen. It is true that D Managers hire D players. Cumbersome processes. Top talent not appreciated. It is all about who you know and if you are in the bay area. Some of the worst decisions that I have seen management make (ivory tower and out of touch with reality).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Replace most of the top level management (below the Software CEO). Treat your top talent well so that they can become company advocates and ambassadors. if things do not change HP will continue to attract bad management and spiral to oblivion
