    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 Management

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

    Pros

    HP has great hiring policies. There are great people to work for and with. The company still has a prestigious name and is a valuable thing to have on one's resume.

    Cons

    What HP doesn't have is a great working environment anymore. There are major changes going on, as with many other companies. They say they support a work-life balance but they have laid off supporting staff and that makes the remaining staff responsible for multiple jobs under one title. They still have not flattened the organization enough to allow the front line people the flexibility to do their job without upper management approval.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to treat your employees like the assets they are. You took a lot of time, money, and effort to hire and train them - you need to keep them and show loyalty if you want the same in return. People count - not just the bottom line.
