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

Pros

I enjoyed my time at HP due to the people I worked with, very positive and helpful. No one will leave you hanging.

Cons

Management constantly sends mixed messages. "Our people are very important... sorry we are laying you off." "We are hitting our numbers and on the right track... due to budget cuts we won't pay for equipment that you need at home to do your job." And so on.

Advice to Management

The business climate is tough, everyone understand that, but when we aren't firing on all cylinders don't take it out on those doing what they are told to do. Look at your management that is making these decisions.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Amount of vacation time is nice but that is it.

    Cons

    Leadership has no idea what goes on beneath them, pay is terrible, when you do get paid- payroll frequently messes up paychecks, technology is outdated which is horrible considering who you are working for. Managers also frequently "hide" client complaints or problems from upper management which causes loss of business and respect. I haven't seen any sign of professionalism since working here.

    Advice to Management

    Find out what's going on in your organizations. Guarantee something is being hidden from you and your losing business. Most of your managers do nothing all day. Take a closer look at your Pontiac, MI site.

    Pros

    Good people to work with.

    Cons

    They were in transition at the end. We were tasked with duties at the end for which we were not initially trained. And the duties were temporary till the contract was over.
