    Pros

    Work from home office. HP paid for home office, furniture, equipment, phone, etc.

    Cons

    Carlie Fiorina. She took the company apart for her own gain, got fired for poor performance, and was paid $40M to leave. Pathetic.

    Pros

    Great work hours allows for a great work/family time balance. The pay is decent and it provides an opportunity to get some great experience.

    Cons

    Some of the processes they have in place for field techs are confusing and the tempo is pretty high so there are not many training opportunities. They are highly focused on metrics so even if the job is getting done there are unrealistic expectations on meeting metrics.

    Advice to Management

    A new system to track metrics should be developed so that it is user friendly. Dispatch could do a better job dispatching call so that the schedule is more manageable.
