Purchased EDS; immediately everyone took 5% pay cut

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

The benefits were great: health insurance, long-term care, disability, dental, medical spending account, child care spending account, discount for your auto insurance, adoption assistance, etc.

Cons

Worked on-site as a sub-contractor on a government contract. HP at corporate got all kinds of benefits. Those of us out "in the field" were forgotten. The company is so big that you're just a number.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You need to reward those who do not work at corporate offices. We are the ones bringing in the contract dollars.

    Pros

    Flexible location/ work hours- most job positions are given the option of working remotely as long as the job is getting done. In a company of this size, opportunities for advancement or career changes come up more often.

    Cons

    Previous leadership regimes cut research and development to the bone and tried to "buy" technology through acquisitions rather than by developing organically. As a result HP is behind the tech curve and now struggling to re-invent itself. Morale is improving but still quite low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come up with a growth strategy and stick to it. Avoid further acquisitions until all the recent buys have been fully assimilated and stabilized.
