    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Household name. Many contracts around the globe.

    Cons

    Corporate attitude is a bit egotistical.
    They do not care about employees very much.
    HP lost the contract I was working on, so I had to find a new job. In what seemed like a lucky coincidence, they won a contract with a large pharma company just down the street at about that same time. There was even job openings for exactly what I was doing on the contract that was ending. However, due to the way the company was structured, I was in a different "silo" , "segment", or whatever you want to call it, so I was not eligible for the job. However, a stranger off the street was eligible to apply. GREAT!!
    That's not even the worse part. Even though HP lost the contract, and I tried to get another job within HP, and I did not quit before the contract ended, HP tried to get me to say I resigned!! Of course this was BS, so I stuck to my guns and did not submit the letter of resignation. For this they rewarded me with a status of "left the company on bad terms" in my file. Way to treat people HP!!!

    Advice to Management

    Remember that employees make the company.
