Great Place to work with..

Technology Consultant II (Former Employee)
Bangalore

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

ProsHP has got really good work life balance and they respect and give freedom to its employee. HP is a renowned brand word wide and you will get plenty of opportunities in HP. Very cool life and managers are very much mature. Very good office campus in Bangalore(EC and Mahadevpura)

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus on giving hikes and promotion otherwise it is best place to work with.
