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

Pros

Culture changed as company became more international teaching how to act with global counterparts effectively, a very useful skill. A differnet skill is needed to get things done outside of this country as there is a less willingness to take on responsibilty. Motivational factors include mentoring and coaching.

Cons

Work hours are longer. Working after hours, weekends and holidays.

Advice to Management

Try to reduce or balance workload so that there is more time to unwind.

    stop getting rid of people who did the work. take a look at some of the vp's and directors first.
    start focussing on reward and recognition.
    stop the politics and do some work for the company instead if your own pockets
