    Pros

    Some good people work there and they tend not to be in management.

    Cons

    Someone in management gets hired from an outside company and then hires all their buddies from that former company into HP. This has occurred twice to me in less than one year, in two different organizations within HP. A manager get hired into HP and fills up management roles with their friends from the former company. If you are not part of that group from the former company - you don't matter.

    Forcing employees to work from the office with archaic practices . Monitoring desk time and sending building badge access reports to managers. They don't expect management to be able to know if people are contributing or not. Just don't end up on the bad list of the badge access report. Childish and inept.

    Lots of waste due to lack of communication and involvement within groups and externally. To many middle managers. "Peter Principle" is alive and well here.

    They are filing jobs with Millennials. Cheap and inexperienced. Open jobs for anyone with "experience" very hard to find.

    Advice to Management

    Take a look at the managers of organizations that have hired i cronies for their former place of employment. There is a good chance their former company is happy to have gotten rid of them.....and HP takes them right in. No questions asked.
