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

Pros

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

Cons

Size 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The first and second level management really cared about their employees and took care of them as much as they could.

    Cons

    The hirer level management looked at the employees as numbers only and didn't let the plans and programs have an opportunity to work. There is too many changes too quickly without the opportunity for people to work the plans.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find the right plans and stick with them.
