Pros

none that I can think of

Cons

In IT organizations, politics is around managers managing "assets" - databases or applications that own and protect even if it does not make sense

Advice to Management

what advice can you give to folks who have been there for 10-15 years and keep digging the same holes over and over

    Pros

    Too many employees per manager, so they can't micromanage. The printer and PC market is destroying them and the tech services are carrying the load.

    Cons

    Too much corporate BS. Too many "flavor of the week" initiatives that you have to fill out and take training on, then you'll never hear about them again.

    Pros

    The co-workers are great, and facilities are ok

    Cons

    Neopotism needed for promotion, individual without required BA or BS are promoted to supervisor after less that 2 monts as a team lead, where the team lead positions where not open to apply for. Clicks are prodominent, you are not rewarded for giving 100 % back to the click. no guidance or mentoring form management...if you are turned down they suggest asking the management team for advice...back to square one. Low pay for the error, lower raises (In the cents).

    Advice to Management

    You need to nip this in the bud, before all the excellent sharp workers leave HP to go to other companies. There are serious HP/HR regs ignored here
