    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    It has great benefits and depending on your manager very family friendly. Being a teleworker can cut the downtime spent driving back forth to work.

    Cons

    Pay cuts and the difference between treatment of LTE and full employee. LTE's work just as hard to make it happen. Sometimes they work harder than normal employees.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to take the time to give praise and recognition to those who work hard everyday to make it happen. Those overlooked are the companies face in the eyes of the client.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    It's a job, decent pay, but very little else to get excited about. Management says all the right things but does all the wrong things.

    Cons

    No respect for employees. Layoffs all the time and forced ranking is going to destroy the company. Once job market improves employees will leave in droves.

    Advice to Management

    The success of HP is because of the great people there, not because of the spreadsheets and metrics that run the company now. Only time before the company breaks apart.
