I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Interesting technology
as part of the larger HP organization, it's possible to look at other areas within HP for possible career moves

Cons

Micro management, public belittling of employees, high turnover (i'm the last one left of my initial training group of 24 - and that's less than 2 years later)
unrealistic

Advice to Management

understand the culture that still exists in Autonomy - and it is toxic to long term success. Bring better and more consistent management from HP or outside the organization.

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

    Pros

    HP provides very good benefits, 401K with match, good life, health and stock purchase plans.
    I enjoyed working for HP very much.

    Cons

    I would have liked more involvement from the managers regarding career development, and reviewing of job goals and expectations.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Broad opportunities across industries and clients. When you work at the customer site you are definitely limited to that company and the roles within it.

    Cons

    You are a vendor always serving a customer and as such subject to the customer's direction.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the central HR management and allow the management that is closest to the employee to evaluate and direct that employees activities. I know the central HR reaches out to them but the reviews are a joke since they are for the most part just reading emails from your real manager.
