    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard part-time

    Pros

    Employees are paid a monthly salary

    Cons

    Long hours with low pay.
    Limited promotions even after putting in ridiculous hours
    High attrition due to many abandoning this sinking ship
    Excess workload for remaining employees
    Lots of cost cutting originally started by Mark Hurd leading to cut in innovation and non investment in employees.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training employees. Promote instead of giving excuses.
