    Pros

    Solid Company, Good performance, internationally diversified

    Cons

    Hard to get promotions, Don't expect salaries or promotions, the company counts nickels and dimes and in its efforts to reduce costs it is reducing all the benefits for its employees while top managers get the big slice of savings.

    Advice to Management

    They need to listen more to the employees and the voice of the workforce. Every year we go through the exercise of the voice of the workforce to get employee feedback yet management fails to address the concerns of the employees and instead adjust the data to show good numbers.

    Pros

    A lot of people still have the perception of the "old" HP. They still have a company car program that is very good. Telecommuting is an option for a lot of people. Payroll seemd to be one department that functions well, so you do typically get paid. You can buy ink cartidges at a discount. They will let you use HP's discount for rent-a-cars at a great rate. Boy, this is getting hard to find 100 words of good things. It was a great company at one time. I once got a bonus, about 7 years ago. That's the best I can come up with.

    Cons

    They continue to close field offices, such that sales people no longer communicate. No bonus / incentive to achive a certification. A lot of people spend a lot of thier own money to acheive proffesional and technical certifications. Once they figure out there's no real reward they leave. The old one's stay, even though the pension is frozen. HP keep spiling on the work day in day out. Almost everyone telecomutes and workes flex hours. You would think that would be a good thing, but it take days just to get caught up from a day off. Everday Sucks...Welcome EDS.

    Advice to Management

    Stop cutting benefits, espeicially when Mark Hurd and the new guy from EDS are #1 & 3 as highest paid in the industry.
