I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

flexibility, work any where anytime, good people, friendly, casual atmosphere

Cons

Ongoing layoffs and cost controls, very minimal pay raises. Need to hire in externally to get competitive pay vs moving up within the company
worked around the clock, and this is expected, you can work from home or where ever, but you need to be online and working at all hours.

    Pros

    Competitive pay, layoffs have left a lean/hungry team, strong leadership, clear vision for the future, lots of healthy team work.

    Cons

    It can take a while to figure out how to navigate such a large international company and you can feel lost if you arent proactively looking to get involved.

    Keep giving clear guidance, direction and trust employees to get the job done.
