    Pros

    The management would push you to the limit, so you get good improvement on expertise and knowledge.

    The compensation is low, and the hours are long. Also, as the company is not performing well, there is a lot of re-organizations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I was able to transition to different functions in a couple of years and work in two different countries. In my 5.5 years with the firm, I was able to do software testing engineering (using Mercury tools), project management, account management and finally technical sales lead.

    Cons

    The business units were not structured well - sometime different team would compete for the same deal before the same customer. Also the pay increase is a downside for veterans.

    Pros

    If you can work with a team that is passionate a driven you can carve our a strong hold within the company. If you are driven and apply yourself to achieve quantifiable results you will do well.

    Cons

    They are unpredictable. Even as I reached positions within the company where I held significant authority I still would need to worry about whether or not my division would be around next quarter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide your employees with proper intensives and recognize the talent of your engineers. To much focus is given to the sales and marketing teams.
