This is one of the worst job experiences in my life.

ProsAs a large company their benefit offerings are good. If you are willing to move a lot your opportunities are greater.

ConsMore bureaucracy than the federal government. Everything is self serivce, you have to wade through tons of policies and procedures to try to get any questions answered as an employee! On a work level it is even worse, right hand doesn't know what left hand is doing. And just when you are familiar with the right answers, policy will change again. By far the cheapest company I have ever seen in the investments they make in regard to the tools and software systems you have to deal with on a daily basis.

Advice to Senior ManagementHP systems are beyond inadequate and cost the company an enormous amount of employee downtime due to systems not working. On the consumer side you could improve service drastically if management would actually make decisions based on what customer service reports and what the customer actually complains they don't like- like outsourcing!

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
