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

    Pros

    Company has many talented people and good products.

    Cons

    Management does not seem accountable for bad decisions and poor acquisitions. Only thing HP knows how to do is set fault on employees and cut workforce year after year. HP has cut so much, it is no longer functioning as a top company.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work was good, fellow employees were helpful, immediate manager was supportive.

    Cons

    The culture of separating the regular, or full-time, HP employees from those on less secure third-party or agency contracts. They all do the same job.
    I started on contract at $19 per hour, but this was reduced to $16 in a cost-cutting measure.

    Advice to Management

    1: Use more on-the-job training and sharing of skills.
    2: Trust your employees more, including those who are not "full-time" HP employees.
    3: STOP OUTSOURCING JOBS to "low-wage" countries. It is not worth it, either in money or in quality.
