    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.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It is hard to find a pro working for HP as they run their business based on cutting heads to meet their bottom dollar.

    Cons

    Entirely too many work force reductions over the years - especially the older seasoned experienced individuals. One could conclude the work force reductions are based on age, but trying to prove that legally would be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Find someone to run HP that actually cares about the employees and not how much money goes into their own personal bank accounts.
