    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    Pros

    Austin location, Austin location, Austin location, Austin location, Austin location, Austin location, Austin location... See where I'm going with this...?

    Cons

    Worn-out facilities, worn-out equipment, open/noisy work environment, lack of flexibility regarding work arrangements, glacially-paced advancement opportunities, and zero training.
    While many of the newer hires are bright and talented, there are still too many corporate leeches hanging around drawing a check and obstructing progress.

    Advice to Management

    Finish the purge quickly, establish the new culture and then start giving back some of the perks (flexible work arrangements, better equipment, etc...) that might make the place more attractive.

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

    Pros

    Great company training and training from partners.
    Highly advanced with technical infrastructure, as it should be for a technical company.
    Good pay.

    Cons

    Horrible in team training.
    Constant changes in structure and upper management.
    3 CEOs in 3 years.
    Health care options in New Mexico were not great.

    Advice to Management

    Stop changing company hierarchy so much. I normally really enjoy change but it was completely chaotic there.
