I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Work was good, fellow employees were helpful, immediate manager was supportive.

Cons

The culture of separating the regular, or full-time, HP employees from those on less secure third-party or agency contracts. They all do the same job.
I started on contract at $19 per hour, but this was reduced to $16 in a cost-cutting measure.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1: Use more on-the-job training and sharing of skills.
2: Trust your employees more, including those who are not "full-time" HP employees.
3: STOP OUTSOURCING JOBS to "low-wage" countries. It is not worth it, either in money or in quality.

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

    Pros

    Work with little or no management in put, if willing to move opportunities to grow and move up and around the country. Online training but no classes most of the time.

    Cons

    No pay raises in last two years because of current cost cutting. Management to busy doing reports to focus on workers excepts for emergencies. It is just another big company with good benefits and good place to work. No longer exceptional.

    Pros

    Great community. Employer that truly supports work life balance and gives you the opportunity to make a lot of money.

    Cons

    So many tools that new hires can get lost in translation. You can get different answers from three different tools.
