    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Fantastic if you are just starting out, and looking to get your feet wet (ie. gain some real working experience)
    - Really great place learn more if you intend to get technically knowledgeable and certified, since you get plenty of courses and certification exams free of charge
    - Provides real lab equipment for testing and learning purposes
    - Lots of fun, friendly, positive people to work together with who make it worthwhile
    - Team building events and sports/outdoor-related events are organized often and provide even more opportunity to make new friends and connections and stay healthy
    - The business seems to be turning around and growing again
    - Plenty of opportunities to move up and also to other types of jobs in the same or other field
    - Internal survey allows workers to voice their opinions anonymously, which is acted upon to some extent at least
    - No 'intimidating' hierarchical management
    - Clean facilities and pleasant working atmosphere

    Cons

    - No compensation for sales leads or other situations where you help the company profit (there is one such program, but you get around $500 when the company makes over a million)
    - Barely "decent" compensation, primarily they pay people the bare minimum they have to in order to keep them working there
    - Lack of any prospective salary increases except the occasional yearly 5% at most, even when changing to positions that should pay more
    - In some cases filled with plenty of bureaucracy and similar hurdles to progress (but improving)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, listen more to your employees, focus more on quality product rather than low production costs, and the company may yet turn around...
