Listen to the field. They have a lot to offer.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    *Teleworking was a norm (now being discouraged) *Some very bright, hardworking people *Salaries can be competitive

    Cons

    *Management can be ever-changing, both in personnel and in direction *Those who rise to the top can be old-fashioned and stodgy about technology *Layoffs and outsourcing can affect even top-performing teams

    Advice to Management

    Take a hard look at whether the managers you think are great are simply great at managing up. Those in the trenches know who's being effective and who isn't. Really listen to those Voice of the Workforce surveys and then act on them. Not all value can be found in spreadsheets.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Decent Pay, Great Resume builder, Great Co workers, Diverse environment

    Cons

    Unorganized, discrimination, too many layoffs

    Advice to Management

    What is the point of knocking non experienced computer people down if this is a place where experience should be built? Stay humble and remember you had to start from somewhere as well.
