Always wondering who is next to be cut. For the past 10 years there has been a real lack of stability.

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

Pros

Fantastic co-workers. top level management keeps making wieid decisions to by other companies while cutting into the talent that exists.

Cons

Management transplants and re-transplant people into new teams and roles too soon the get good at their new job. Once you are getting good, they move you. hard to get consistently good reviews when you are always on the move.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop jerking folks from one team to another.

    Pros

    good coworkers, flexible time, okay benefits

    Cons

    Engineering function largely eliminated, replaced by supply chain and supplier managers, engineering now outsourced. Management is terrible. Top management has run the company dangerously close to falling into death spiral. Local San Diego site management has hardly changed for 15 years and is a good ole boys club. They have little imagination and no courage to speak upwards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move out of the way. Get some new blood.
