    I think HP has eroded some of the values that EDS had.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Broad opportunities across industries and clients. When you work at the customer site you are definitely limited to that company and the roles within it.

    Cons

    You are a vendor always serving a customer and as such subject to the customer's direction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the central HR management and allow the management that is closest to the employee to evaluate and direct that employees activities. I know the central HR reaches out to them but the reviews are a joke since they are for the most part just reading emails from your real manager.

    EDS was a much better company to work for

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Fortune 100 company. Pay is good if you rise to a level higher than individual performer.

    Cons

    Sometimes too large and difficult to get things done in a simple manner. Frustration galore especially in online training with no one to ask questions. Management structure in this modern business climate leaves much to be desired and management tries to appear friendly but they are in an ivory tower.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make systems more user friendly. Eliminate the multiple approval authorizations it takes to get anything processed.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    None. It was horrible. Full of incompetence and nepotism.

    Cons

    You are a slave! You will treated like pond scum. As far as the are concerned and I will quote, "We can get 10 Indians for what you make!"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get off your lazy overpaid asses and stop importing H1B's for the rock bottom pay rates.
