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

Pros

IF you are working on a contract:

Everything will depend on the quality of your manager. You will find some very good ones, and some not so good.

Cons

Your manager will not get a big amount of support from the "Mothership". Expect to work at getting what is available and promised. This can be a big time sink, so monitor and start action when there is a problem.

Advice to Management

Be consistent in quality and reputation. Show interest in employees, not the next quarterly bottom line.

    Pros

    free environment work place. you can work from home two days each week

    Cons

    without good benefits, even need to pay insurance by yourself, company doesn't cover. If you are just a college graduate, this place is not a good place to gain more growth. Even a team lead who is working at this place for over 10 years, he is not easily to change the position to management.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people working toward a common goal; insane levels of communication from top management all the way down - real focus on transparency and making sure that employees understand the direction, the messages and what is going on with the business.

    Cons

    We are an intensely diverse work group with a huge percentage of "teleworkers". The working from home is great but requires organization, drive and self discipline to "get it done" every day, without anyone looking over your sholder.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out how to get teams together annually for face-to-face meetings
