    Current Employee - Senior Software Engineer in Alpharetta, GA

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    I loved the entrepreneural policy that the management at HP follows. I did not experience any "micro" management. Rather management treats you with respect and gains your willingess to do good work for them in return. The employees are in general seem less stressed even when the work load is heavy and are open to knowlege sharing. The pay scale is above average as compared to other IT shops in the same region.

    Cons

    Somewhat less organized. The employees seem to connect equally well virtually so face-to-face interactions are lacking. This is the case with some groups only and not with all groups.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on getting your team more engaged and connected with each other. Hire more perm rather than contract employees.
