    The number one thing I got out of this company was international experience and a great resume, but not a career.

    Pros

    Terrific resume builder; international experience; a good culture & very nice people to work with; a propendency to hire people right out of college

    Cons

    Far too much restructuring and reorganizing - it seems that it allows a good number of managers to do a poor job and then simply move in order to hide their mistakes; Too many of our managers came from Wal-Mart... you can fill in the rest with that;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Frugality is a good thing, but encourage your employees to do a better job by putting a carrot at the end of the stick.

    The leadership is badly trained in management. Disrespect of employees under them is rampant.

    Pros

    Good work/home balance, flex time.
    Many employees stay at EDS/HP for years, and returning there from other jobs. Although HP/EDS is a company that spends $ sparingly (for equipment, offices supplies, salaries) - it is a stable environment.

    Cons

    HP leaders are badly trained in management. No respect for employees. Lots of belittling and threats, no 'thank you's. They lead by bullying rather than by engaging.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    HP spends a lot of money and time handling employee complaints. Training your leaders would be less costly.
    Please give us better equipment on which to work. The computers break within months (not loading the OS, giving the 'blue screen of death', no wireless in buildings, no projectors in conference rooms, etc.
