    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great community of employees and managers that care about their employees. Promotion very hard to obtain.

    Cons

    Large drop in stocks. Many benefits for full-time employees. Contractors are treated like non-employees and do not have a great experience at Hewlett Packard.

    Pros

    Amazing people to work with. Some really wonderful managers.

    Cons

    Expectation of long hours with no comp. Too many off shore activities. Some manager's are micro-managers and will not shy away from taking the credit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop overloading people with work then expect them not to burn out!

    Pros

    Technologies are cutting edge, prices for products are good. The people are great to work with and management really cares.

    Cons

    Remote work sometimes leaves you feeling as if you really don't know your working team members. It would be nice to be able and attend employee functions to get to know others within the company.
