    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    - If you're contract were to come to an end, you can possibly spend a year on the "bench" waiting for another opportunity to arise.
    - Company promotes 90% telework.

    Cons

    - Management is out of touch with the clients
    - Management is neither knowledgeable nor do they have the necessary skills to manage the projects given to them.
    - This lack of knowledge also means a micro-management style to managing projects and employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Place managers in positions that actually know what the job entails and not based on time left on the bench.

    Former Employee - Senior Program Manager  in  Fort Collins, CO
    Former Employee - Senior Program Manager in Fort Collins, CO

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Leader in many categories, PC's, printers, etc. HP has great people and I enjoyed the relationships I had there. You also have the opportunity to work in many different functional areas.

    Cons

    In the last 10 years senior management is more concerned about their bonus than anything else. The company culture changed significantly from one that cared about employees to one that made employees feel that they were a burden to the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management needs to figure out what they want to do. The PC group management team completely missed the tablet market, the CEO turnover is well documented, and the board of directors is completely dysfunctional. Come up with a plan and stick with it.
