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

    Pros

    Good work culture, enterprise level work, process oriented, employee friendly, work life balance, good for retirement

    Cons

    Exposure to international work environment is less due to more internal work, since I have aligned to HP from Digital days so Indian culture of internal politics inherited by few managers. Racism within Indian employees. Senior management always busy with their promotion and does not care about subordinate's issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time to change, its an MNC company so try to educate your senior employees to follow the right work culture and stop being bossy and racial and bias towards your own state employees. And please reduce corporate politics at mid to senior levels and disappointing.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard for less than a year

    Pros

    more beneficial point was that everything was process driven. facilities provided were good. office culture makes you contribute more to the work.

    Cons

    work life balance was good, but coming to personal growth there is nothing much. moving across different projects sometimes may not sound good.
