I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

People you work with are great. I have built some long lasting relationships.

Cons

Don't expect to get a raise without fighting for it. Any training you take will not be approved unless it relates to your current position.

Advice to Management

The stock holders pay your check but the people in the trenches are the ones building the networks, servers and workstations that make the stock go up. So please remember us when you get a big bonus.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Its a full time job even if your a 2 year temp worker.

    Cons

    They don't give raises even when you level up. They lie to your face about getting you that raise after you confront them several times or they come up with excuses why not to give you a raise. They do not supervise the employees well. They fire real quick as well as hire a whole bunch of people and fire them if they don't get up to speed they will let you go. They give you a week to build enough units and give you poor training.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to what actually needs to be done to your company before you screw it over and make HP no longer available.
