    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.
