    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Was a job I had for over 4 years during the "Great Recession" it was nice to have a job.

    Cons

    Paid 20 -30K below median pay scale. Treated very poorly. Very low scale on the job training. Felt like a number. Some areas were managed like a fraternity/high school clique. Management by fear. Annual pay increases did not occur three out of the 4 years employed there. Never felt as if the ship was being steered in the right direction.

    Case and point, HP had 3 CEO's in two years. HP has not come up with any new innovations to propel them forward or capitalize on any of their company purchases. Examples include: the BILLIONS of dollars used to purchase EDS, that was a bust. The stock prices went in the toilet over that one, and the Autonomy debacle also has caused serious doubts about board decisions. They spent more money making bad financial decisions when they should have been pumping those monies into R and D, Management training. and annual salary increases. Definitely not a good employment choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reinvent from the top down, make good financial decisions, accept blame and take personal responsibility when making any decision. Listen to your employees more deeply, and pay them fairly based on the work level and results provided. Pray that your company is around in 50 years or someone like Oracle will own you.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    HP is one of the largest companies in the world creating great IT products, focused on simplicity that masks complexity, speed, and agility, driven by cloud, mobility and big data. It has the potential to drop all barriers to entry in all businesses.

    Cons

    Some troubles with the Autonomy acquisition, bureaucracy, the PC business but we strong believe that under Meg Whitman will go better.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to bust some bureaucracy.
