I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a year

Pros

Good benefits, exposure to international culture

Cons

Very clique-ish, which means often people less qualified will be given more opportunities
constant Half truths and Whole lies from mgmt can destroy morale and kill a team

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Please develop more stringent criteria for team management and evaluate them more closely and more often.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor

    Pros

    Lots of overtime. Challenging. Work with people worldwide.

    Cons

    The minute earnings for HP look a little down they start terminating people. Last in first out no matter how well you do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees or contingent workers are giving you there best. It not a good thing to treat them like a simple financial number that can be discarded the minute management makes a few bad decisions.

    Former Employee - Your Guess IS As Good As Mine Job Don't Match Title in Fort Knox, KY

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    They will promise you the world

    Cons

    Remember this is as a sub-contractor to HP working at Ft Knox and only pertains to that job
    -broken promises
    -lies
    -waste of tax payer money
    -no career advancement
    -get mad if you try to better yourself or leave to better yourself
    -managers are non-technical in charge of highly skilled IT professionals

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    go look at your team at HP, hold them accountable, be good stewards of the tax payers money, and manage the processes and people along with the money, not just manage the money and make sure they get bonus at end of year for keeping contractor pay as low as possible, you get what you pay for.
