    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You aren't held to your ancillary metric of calls so long as you perform the actual task of sourcing meetings.
    Fairly relaxed environment except when management is present.
    Free breakfast Wednesday, free lunch Friday.

    Cons

    You cannot advance within the company and there is zero track for career growth.
    Management is pompous, vindictive and petty. A company of many bads ideas.
    Don't confuse motion with action.

    Advice to Management

    Quit. There's no hope for these people. I would say accept input from your staff but that's already in place in a kind of shrewd attempt at feigning interest.
