I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Flexible work schedule, decent pay, but could be better. Raises were slight if none. Opportunity to grow if you want to, but you need to take the initiative. Nice facilities, great people, good work life balance.

Cons

Because of the economy there were lots of take aways from over the years. Many employees feel very unsettled and don't feel the loyalty that was once HP. For a new hire, it is still a great place to work.

    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.
