    Pros

    The only pro is some of the people I have the pleasure of working with. The most favorable people are pre-Compaq employees. They know the business and take the time to mentor you in a genuine manner.

    Cons

    Way to many politics! If you do not have a degree in political science or despise politics; run far away from HP. HP is currently trying to reinvent itself and present the image of a fun work environment. It is the total opposite. You are forced to work against your peers since you are rated on an individual scale. This creates a "back" stabbing environment where little to nothing gets done since everyone is scrambling to make themselves look good while they are making others look bad. If you have a political science degree or you like politics, this is an ideal environment for you.

    Advice to Management

    Provide the ratings for all employees to see. How are we supposed to continue to increase our abilities if we do not know who we should model. Then again, management does not care about the employee; they only care about there bonus.
