    Advice to Management

    - For the middle managers nothing really, they're just following orders from the top.
    - For the top level managers, you need not worry whether the company goes belly up or the workers get disadvantaged, you have your golden parachutes.

  2. The 1990s was a great time to work for HP because the company was very employee oriented.

    Pros

    Certain organizations withing HP are employee oriented. These organizations allow for work from home. This flexibility allows for work life balance. The salaries are somewhat competitive.

    Cons

    There are organizations within HP that are forcing out there older employees and replacing them with college graduates. Certain organizations are not employee and have take it or leave mentality about the employees.

    Advice to Management

    You are losing some very talented employees. Your treatment of employees will backfire on you when the job market picks up. There will be a mass exodus of talneted people.
