Great work life balance, overall a good company to work for.

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Fort Collins, CO (US)

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

ProsGreat work life balance. No pressure to work more than 40 hours a week. Extra effort usually is rewarded.

ConsSize of the company is huge. There is constant management and structural changes. It is sometimes impossible to get the equipment needed. Takes forever for a plan to be put into place.

Advice to Senior ManagementCut out all of the bureaucracy and let the enigneers get things done. Stop thinking quarter to quarter and thing bigger picture

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
