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

    Pros

    Regular paychecks and good medical benefits.

    Cons

    The best reasons are that they expect you to give up your life for their job so they can treat you badly, expect you to work overtime constantly, cut your pay, and if you get the pay back it is taxed at over 40%. They also have quotas on the end of year reviews and even if you did a good job you can be given a bad rating because of the quotas. Also, it is 3 years to become vested in your 401k. They will lay you off before then and take back the matching.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the extra layers of management and have the senior management staff actually work for a living.


  2. "Product Engineer"

    Large Co with many resources

    Advice to Management

    Let acquired company's maintain their identity so the individual contributes still feel free to innovate. That is how they grew and is what made them attractive to you in the first place.
