    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Healthcare premium low but are rumored to soon scaled back due to 87% of work is outsourced to other countries and on a maximum of 4 sites to remain in US..so they can still reap the benefits of being calleda US based company lol

    Cons

    HR department nonexistent. .low salaries...no movement given inside company preference is given to temps so benefits are not provided through company..low tech for high tech contracts

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest to the employee s you hire on on likely tenture and advanceing within company don't share your misery you are already fully aware of

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great place to gain experience in a VERY narrow band of information, but you will know it up, down and sideways and nothing more.

    Cons

    There are books written about how bad it is to work here: They've been rated the #1 worst IT company in America to work for a number of years. You pay them to cover your medical benefits and they take the write off. ALL their benefits are like that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I had a number of friends and co workers abruptly come to the realization that anything less than 50 hours a week is considered an underperformer.
