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

    Pros

    If you have a position that is client facing or a customer that requires US employees, you will have opportunity and work with the latest technology. I see effort to begin recognizing employee effort and innovation which has been lacking for years.

    Cons

    Constant effort to ship technical positions to India and Central/South America. Constant internal cannibalism as "leveraged" teams will try to displace dedicated teams and HP internal sales teams try to bring everyone into the offshore fold.

    Advice to Management

    Best shore will not be best practice as time will tell. Your short term gain will only yield long term pain for clients as the quality of service plummets and we continue to have customers disengage.
