Current Employee - Customer Service Engineer

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

It's honestly no difference from your regular job. You go to work, then work, then eat lunch then go back to work.

Cons

People aren't fun to work with.. though that may be a location by location thing.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Not much I can think of

    Cons

    They will screw you over big time when you leave and then leave you in the dark about it unless you ask. The company does not like people who don't just sit there and mindlessly do their jobs. Management is laughable at best and has no idea what goes on in the day to day running of the company. Had so many technology issues while there it was hard to believe that they are a technology company. No improvements are ever made... if they assign you a "company laptop" to do your job rest assured it is the oldest piece of crap they could find in their inventory. Benefits are costly and the plans are not that great. The location I worked at was old and dusty and not very well taken care of. Office equipment (chairs, desks, printers, etc) are so out of date that it is laughable. You will not get a raise while working here if you work in certain divisions as they will come back and say that they don't have to give you a raise ever if you ask. Cost of living and expenses will go up but you can bet your salary at this company will not.. and it's laughable compared to other companies in the healthcare field. Oh and by the way they don't promote from within much you may get a transfer to another department but don't expect it to be any kind of promotion or come with increased pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees or you aren't going to have any. This place was full of ineffective middle management who didn't need to be supervising a department that they knew nothing about. Cut the middle management paper pushers who are just sucking the funds away anyway and pay the employees who actually do the work for you.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    At least in my team i have work life balance (for now and i see other team mates working around the clock) mostly due to my unique skills, pay is ok for a recent graduate

    Cons

    Constant fear over lay offs which are of course not strategically but they seem to be totally random without regards of your performance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wishful thinking would be to stop following the stupid mantra of "must increase shareholder value"
