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.

    Pros

    HP has a good Benefit package, along with multiple opportunities for advancement. This is a great place to either get your corporate feet wet, or settle for a long career.

    Cons

    Compensation plans could stand to be a little better, along with communication, but overall a good company to work for.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Being independent and able to work and make decisions on my own. Supportive direct management and positive attitude of direct supervisor towards me. Flexible work-time, ability to balance between personal and professional life as per my personal judgement.

    Cons

    Not so good salary and compensations. No or very low bonuses, no monetary or other stimulation for better performance. Lack of funding for external training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide more effective ways to encourage performance and creativity, reward employees as per their achievements. Offer more training and additional social benefits.
