    Pros

    Good start for entry-level help desk support. Depending on department you're given 1 week to 3 months training. At the time of my training I received a week and other got three months for a new start up department. In-house cafeteria. Walk-able for exercise.

    Cons

    I didn't stay because of the drive and I had an older car. Cafeteria was all that hot.

    None.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard as a contractor

    Pros

    Good starting point, Looks good on resume.. that's about it

    Cons

    Start working here if you don't know anything about computers! Seriously Talent is not recognized here. Management is getting calls from users that people are doing well, and these are the people they are letting go because this kind of good feedback makes management look bad! Was hired in as l1 with beyond senior tech experience. Then Fired.. Then weeks go by, and I was offered a position as a l2 with less pay then a level 1!!! Was going to give them another chance till I seen the pay!

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring people, waisting time to train good techs and let them go, People do have lives need to understand this

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

    Pros

    Engineers and Analysts are excellent and quality driven. Pay was good and work environment was awesome when HP allowed people to work from home. Productivity of work from home employees was incredible and people took great pains to maximize their time and productivity....emphasis on "WAS."

    Cons

    Company is getting ridding itself of on-shore and highly experienced employees to just cut costs regardless of impact on service delivery. Long-time clients are bailing left and right. Internal tools to support the business are a mish-mash of older (and sometimes better) EDS tools and HP tools and integration between tools is via "swivel-chair" and "sneakerrnet." Employees are now FORCED to come into the office or fired, even though 2 years ago they were sent home to work to save on brick and mortar. Fear of layoff is the prevailing office morale. Sad turn of events. EDS brought in a "who you know" rather than "what you know" culture.

    Advice to Management

    Re-Read "Rules of the Garage" and get back to that HP culture, quick. Off-shore employees are very good, but your not going to replace an employee with 10 years with a customer with a "fresher" in India and hold customer satisfaction high, but you will save a buck...till the client kicks you out.
