It's OK, but steadily declining

Software Engineer (Current Employee)
Roseville, CA

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

ProsAlthough we did lose one week of paid time off in favor of "unlimited" sick leave I do still get 4 weeks off per year after 10+ years at the company. The people that work here are highly skilled and for the most part great to work with. It's a very professional place to work, which is good for women particularly.

ConsEvery year more work gets moved to India, Costa Rica, Singapore, Brazil, and other countries. It is harder and harder to get high quality products released with all the time differences and low-bandwidth communication. It used to be enjoyable working with colleagues to create products, but now it is really a drag.

Advice to Senior ManagementMaximizing profit to the extreme at the expense of employee satisfaction will likely eventually backfire.
