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

    Pros

    The work is simple, and the hours are flexible. The pay is also pretty good for the area.

    Cons

    There is no job security whatsoever. Everyday you are trying to figure out what the best move is to make to keep a job. All of the jobs are being shipped over seas and to Mexico.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell the truth. Don't lie to keep your employees around until they can successfully train employees overseas and then get rid of them. If everyone thinks they are going to lose their jobs no matter what they lose all motivation to work hard.

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

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume. I have been offered a better job and better pay with another company because of my experience here, so I am thankful for that. I have already put my two weeks notice in.

    Cons

    At my particular location, the pay is not that great and there is not a lot of opportunity for growth, even though I have been promoted 4 times is 2.5 years. Career path at HP seems to consist of a lot of "lateral moves" where your responsibilities increase ten fold, but your pay does not.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate a clear vision to your employees and stick to it. Reward people based on performance and not favoritism.
