    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    When I started working there the company culture was awesome. Good benefits, great products, engaging technical projects and responsibilities and opportunities for movement and advancement. Great people, until forced lay-offs and retirement programs.

    Cons

    Over 16 years, the company lost valuing employees, cut benefits, & froze (sometimes reduced) pay. What used to be profit-sharing became variable performance, which threw teamwork out the window for individual achievement. A series of bad CEO's and company scandals led to perpetual lay-offs. Lack of hiring over the last 15 years led to an older workforce that they want to eliminate because they cost too much. Acquisitions became the norm, and R&D is non-existent. For a while they didn't even want you coming to work, reduced space in the office, and site maintenance showed how the company has been struggling. I am certain H&P are rolling over in their graves.

    Advice to Management

    You aren't making it in IT services. You've been trying to reinvent for years. Listen to the employees - if you have any left.


  2. Morale is low and management should start trusting employees more.
