    Pros

    I worked for Compaq until it was acquired by HP. Compaq was the best place I have ever worked.

    Cons

    HP converted every Compaq employee's right to an office to cube city with a virtual door. I left in 2994. My friends still there are not very happy with the changes over the years.

    Pros

    When I started the company had a great Work from Home strategy, company support, and excellent management direction.

    Cons

    The company has lost its way. Randomly laying off people that do good work. Changing the culture to "how do I get them to pick the other guy"

    Advice to Management

    Do to others as you want done to you.

    Pros

    Fun atmosphere for the most part, depending what department. Lots of money to be made, but might take years to get there.

    Cons

    Your interview is a complete lie of what you will be doing. It's almost shocking. That's seriously the best way to describe it. Go be in a different department, and not business development.

    Advice to Management

    Don't request your employees to do things that you can not even do. Don't change a process every few months, and don't pick favorites. Be more encouraging, and don't threaten employees with performance plans.

    Pros

    Good people. Interesting products to work on. Advancement if industrious and willing to self-sell. Its possible to stand out and lead, even if joining the team late.

    Cons

    Thick, thick layers of management and beaurocracy. Many short sighted decisions based on quartarly numbers. Will demand more hours than is healthy or productive, yet that can be resisted.

    Advice to Management

    Thin management ranks. Empower and incentivise top tech contributors.
