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

Pros

HP is one of the great company that I have worked in. You have people with great talents and very good managers. The system and process in place are very reliable. If you perform in your work, be assured you will rewarded and recognized.

Cons

Overall HP operation and services are very complex due to the layers of the organization. Organization structure is not straight forward. At the bigger picture, I dont see HP is competing well with competitors and struggling to be relevant in the market due to changing customer need on pc business.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep it simple and be innovate FAST. Alot of the problem HP faces today is due inability to bring out new invention faster than APPLE, SAMSUNG and other competitor which surpasses HP in delivering good product fast into the market.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Company allows autonomy in doing one's job. Flexible working hours. Little micromanagement. Opportunities for lateral movement. Great corporate history.

    Cons

    Direction of the company is muddled at the top - primarily the board of directors. Layoffs from time to time - does not add to a sense of job security.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick the markets you want to be present in, and stay committed to them. Do not send mixed signals.

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

    Pros

    Large company with lots of opportunities for exploring different businesses and functions. Great people. Collaborative. Flexibility to manage my schedule - to work where and when works best for me.

    Cons

    Too many years of sacrificing the future for the current quarter. Rewards have become too concentrated at the top of the company. Really bad decision making at the executive and board level for way too many years. Workload is ridiculous at times. Little to no time or dollars for training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop trying to grow through acquisitions (especially gigantic, stupid acquisitions!). Focus internally on innovation and invention. Create a more balanced bonus system (profit sharing rather than the ridiculous 'pay for performance') to give all levels of the company incentives, rather than just executives.
