    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company split - assigned to the new company.

    Cons

    The new company (DXC) has a location that is way south of Austin. Lots of traffic to the airport.

    Advice to Management

    Management is doing the best they can given the circumstances - there are many unknowns at this time.

    Pros

    Allot of Challenges. Very complex IT environment.

    Too many ineffective process. Difficult to get the job done. Recognition for the work above and beyond non-existent. Not everyone reads their email daily.

    Change the culture and start doing more of recognition for going that extra mile. Increase IC salaries to be in line with the industry in their Geography. Eliminate processes and procedures that do not add value to HP.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The opportunities for quality work are high with major transformations taking place now and for the next 3 years. This is a great opportunity to learn.

    Cons

    There's no one evaluation that will tell the absolute truth about HP because what affects us the most personally is our direct leadership chain. My current experience is negative but after 10 years here and 7 managers you never know what will come next. I've worked with some great people and peers and some not so great. In the US the workforce has gotten younger while we've also moved a lot of our workforce over seas.

    Currently they're trying to improve the employee culture but it's just repairing the damage they've done over the last year because of seperation

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more with employees, understand what they want and do a better job negotiating when executives want changes that are negative for our workforce.

    Pros

    i had a stellar team, and close management was very good. They keep you challenged, and give you the tools to succeed.

    Cons

    The company seams to be in a very old world management. upper management has no idea what there producing. "I'll do management while you .... do ... things"

    I was hear for ~4 years ... and watched my teams get "wfr'ed" 6 times .... not a great thing it you want job security to worry about if your next
