I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than a year)

Pros

free environment work place. you can work from home two days each week

Cons

without good benefits, even need to pay insurance by yourself, company doesn't cover. If you are just a college graduate, this place is not a good place to gain more growth. Even a team lead who is working at this place for over 10 years, he is not easily to change the position to management.

    Pros

    IF you are working on a contract:

    Everything will depend on the quality of your manager. You will find some very good ones, and some not so good.

    Cons

    Your manager will not get a big amount of support from the "Mothership". Expect to work at getting what is available and promised. This can be a big time sink, so monitor and start action when there is a problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be consistent in quality and reputation. Show interest in employees, not the next quarterly bottom line.
