    Pros

    Meg Whitman is helping turn HP, as a company. Also, during my years at HP, I have had many wonderful leaders and co-workers.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, with difficult times, difficult decisions need to be made. It has been difficult seeing so many good people be let go over the years.

    Advice to Management

    Even with all of the difficult decisions that have been made, I hope that this results in a greater HP!

  3. A nice place to work

    Pros

    Company car. Fair pay. The customer is very important to HP. Fix the customer first. Co workers are a team and work close with each other

    Cons

    Mandatory overtime. There is to many service calls to complete in one day. Some days i would put in over ten hours

    Advice to Management

    Management seems to let the worker make their own decisions. I di not have any problems with my direct manager.

    Pros

    The people/peers are wonderful to work with; all over the globe

    Cons

    Management doesn't "manage" ... they "administer" as the ratio of employee's to managers is too high; raises are non-existent

    Advice to Management

    You shouldn't have let go of your senior people; given time, you will know why
