Analyst (Current Employee)

ProsFairly liberal time off and sick leave policies.

ConsWorking at HP is crazy. They talk people, but when you get a promotion, they don't give you the pay raise. There are no raises to speak of and the benefits really aren't that great. This makes it impossible to build a career at HP, because moving up does your family NO GOOD. The work is tedious, the internal systems are embarrassingly bad for an IT company and they are penny wise and pound foolish.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry living for a month on what you pay your supervisors, let alone your front line workers.
