A typical large company... Lots of opportunities and lots of bureaucracy.

Pros

Good opportunities for career growth. In my experience, managers allow and encourage job changes into new areas. There is a Technical Career Path that provides a path for technical people to move up without having to move into management. Lately they've been encouraging mentoring and different ways to share information across divisions.

Cons

HP is a huge company and is full of annoying bureaucracies. If bureaucracy drives you nuts then don't work for a huge company. If the work you do and the people you work with are more important then HP is a fine place to work and there are lots of opportunities in a large company.

    Great people but a revolving door to the boardroom

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    For the most part, I work with some pretty bright employees. Good benefits. Big community supporter.

    Cons

    Never ending reorganizations make for inefficiencies. Patchwork of systems--likely resulting from numerous mergers and acquisitions over the years--seem most surprising for an IT company!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't give away tens of millions of dollars to top management for NOT working!
