I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Tons of lateral movement possible and huge online training options.

Cons

They are not interested in retaining top employees and their salaries and raise policies push this.

Advice to Management

In technical fields a top employee can be worth multiple lesser ones. You should work to retain them instead of pushing your top minds out the door.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor

    Pros

    The work environment is very laid-back for the most part and you're more or less left to get your work done every day.

    Cons

    Ridiculous and frequently changing policies regarding everything from using your badge to access the building and cleaning of employee refrigerators (which results in trashed lunches from the current day) to constantly changing policies which are often only given by word of mouth.

    I've been boldly lied to by supervisors about availability of work on several occasions and if you're a contractor, you're basically a second-class citizen here.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a job that you need done for more than a year (in this case, a job which is needed indefinitely), then hire for that position instead of training new contractors every two years.
