    Pros

    Flexible times and benefits and compensation are all excellent. Able to work at home however that may have changed now.

    Cons

    Tough environment primarily because people are scattered all over the country. Difficult to work together with other people

  6. I started working straight out of college and have had a wonderful work experience so far.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    The best reasons to work at WindCorp are the seniority of the team. This provides the analysts real learning opportunities. Additionally, during my period at WindCorp, it was working on many projects, which increased my exposure to the M&A world.

    Cons

    You must have a lot of initiative and passion if you want to undertake responsabilities. If you do not show enthusiasm and do not perform as expected you will get projects focused on researching.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the culture that respects and encourages collaboration between workers.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    good employer crosses all t's and dots all I's. benefits great, although copays for blood work, some limitations on drugs. Excellent training although scheduling was a little lacking.

    Cons

    just a little bait and switch during recruitment. I was hired to do one platform and saw very little work on it but they had tons of work on platforms I was not familiar with.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    why bother you will never listen or act on anything. This is a giant machine lumbering along and the inertia is hard to move.
