    Pros

    flexible work locations
    get vacation when you ask for it.

    Cons

    You are a number, and considered an expense.
    20, 25, or 30 years of IT experience...no matter....will just call you and let you go....talent out the window.
    The EDSers who got bought were the best talent and they all make alot less now after pay reductions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers make no money for the company. It is the workers that do the work that allows HP to bill clients. Thousands of Brillant people are perplexed as to why HP has let so much fantastic talent go. 1000's of Brillant IT techies are incredibly smarter than 10 bean counters sitting at a table saying how to save money. It may take the company decades to recover after clients realize a lack of support and knowledge are available. When the best people see work force reductions, they leave the company before it happens to them, thus further reducing the intellect left at HP.
    Stop outsourcing.

    Pros

    Flexible work hours, very accommodating. Great people. Ability to move to new jobs within company. Mgmt will take a chance on you and let you grow into a new role.

    Cons

    Salary - always some excuse for not getting a raise. Few years ago entire company took 5% pay cut. This year everyone got a raise – they got their 5% back.
