Pros

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

Cons

More 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 ManagementAdvice

HP 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!

    Pros

    Flexible, nice people, opportunity to grow

    Cons

    Uncertainty about what is going to happen, the very top management keep changing their mind..
    One day they said HPN is growing so fast that they are going to hire 150 engineers, two weeks later no hiring because no goals were met...Lots of outsourcing and hiring contractors but not full time employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you want to save money, do not cut at the very bottom. American jobs are going away to outsourcing and contractors. Instead of that, hire less VPs, CEOs which means millions of dollars in salaries. We have many emails of new hires (top levels) and none about opportunities for new hires.
