Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Boston, MA (US)

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Great people working toward a common goal; insane levels of communication from top management all the way down - real focus on transparency and making sure that employees understand the direction, the messages and what is going on with the business.

Cons

We are an intensely diverse work group with a huge percentage of "teleworkers". The working from home is great but requires organization, drive and self discipline to "get it done" every day, without anyone looking over your sholder.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Figure out how to get teams together annually for face-to-face meetings

    Former Employee - Technical Support Engineer in Cupertino, CA (US)

    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.
