No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- If you're contract were to come to an end, you can possibly spend a year on the "bench" waiting for another opportunity to arise.
- Company promotes 90% telework.

Cons

- Management is out of touch with the clients
- Management is neither knowledgeable nor do they have the necessary skills to manage the projects given to them.
- This lack of knowledge also means a micro-management style to managing projects and employees.

Advice to Management

Place managers in positions that actually know what the job entails and not based on time left on the bench.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - looks good on your resume, I suppose
    - some very talented people work here
    - could lead to something better when the job market opens up

    Cons

    - no stability
    - leadership by blabbing
    - Dilbert's world makes more sense than this place

    Advice to Management

    Get your heads out of dark places and find out what is happening down in the trenches. You rely on reports through the chain of command without any grasp of reality where business happens.
