  1. Great people. The company was not in a place that fit my view on how to address customer needs.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Most companies don't cover some of the medical treatments that they do with the HP coverage.

    Cons

    Hours are long. Bureaucracy is brutal.

  2. Helpful (1)

    The cultural change was dramatic in coming from another company HP bought and seemed to provide less client delivery.

    Pros

    Exposure to large scale systems and clients while daunting at times, provided the potential for a solid and professional growth path in numerous areas.

    Cons

    The constant worry over the next down-sizing and difficulty in finding internal positions due to budget constraints which affects morale, work product and work-life balance.

    Advice to Management

    There is another side to an employee's value than just the real revenue they bring in, such as in the value of cost avoidance projects and not the RIF type. Besides reducing overall corporate costs in the long run, they can increase customer satisfaction, improve the effectiveness, delivery and timeliness of internal systems, etc. which can positively affect the bottom line as well.
