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

    Pros

    It has been close to 9 months that I have been at Hewlett-Packard and the experience has been nothing but awesome. The company is in the midst of transformation and yes there is restructuring going on, so obviously bonuses or raises is not something that you would expect. For me as a software developer its most important to learn something new everyday. And this is what happens to me everyday.

    Cons

    Too many meetings, but guess that's what happens when you are at any big company. Especially when practicing agile.

    Advice to Management

    My managers are doing a good job.

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

    Pros

    I met very smart and very loyal fellow workers who were honest and hard working.

    Cons

    I met ruthless and unpleasant management who were dishonest and incompetent at their jobs. Some of whom should be in prison for the robbery that was the sale to HP.

    Advice to Management

    You are not the smartest people in the room. Listen to your employees. Respect work life balance. Manage collaboratively and not through intimidation.
