    Pros

    Good products, good service and people who care.

    Cons

    Company miss-managed over the last 10-15 years. Too many CEOs and changing directions has caused the company to lose focus. Currently employees are hanging on waiting out the next work force reduction; keeping their head low. Standardization efforts has cause the company to "manage by metrics" forgetting the reason for the metrics. Process compliance is stifling creativity. Also, continual purchasing of companies versus creating within cause continuous challenges of making it all work together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Enable your employees the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. reduce reliance on the web portals and allow your managers to manage their employees. Build trust, allow your employees to learn and create.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Allowed telecommuting; decent benefits package; great co-workers

    Cons

    Too much corporate lying; could have done without the quarterly meetings...too "high-school prep rally"ish and a really ridiculous waste of valuable time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't tell employees how great and important they are and then follow it by telling them that their benefits are being cut...especially in order to "...align with industry practices."
