    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Amazing people to work with. Some really wonderful managers.

    Cons

    Expectation of long hours with no comp. Too many off shore activities. Some manager's are micro-managers and will not shy away from taking the credit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop overloading people with work then expect them not to burn out!

    politics and metric managing can prevent you from doing your job

    Lay off the metrics or structure it differently. You can't always define a persons work by a number.

    Pros

    Ability to telecommute, encouragement of professional development and ability to work as an individual performer in a supportive team were the more positive aspects of working with HP.

    Cons

    Inconsistent growth as a division with in a large corporation was difficult to manage. Constant reorganization and lack of proper job definition was hard to manage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time identifying how to encourage and motivate your employees. This will better ensure they are able to deal with change.
