    Pros

    Co-workers, longevity, familiarity, culture and work life balance.

    Cons

    HP will offshore work without second thoughts. They will sacrifice knowledge for cost savings and leave workers unemployed. HP also severely underpays their employees, rarely offers pay increases (small % based upon merit) and cuts/reduces severance packages before layoffs.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    Pros

    Pays well and good benefits

    Cons

    Company is all about the money and doesn't care about employees. For the last 8 years, employees have been facing the 'work force reduction' scare. Not a secure job. Even employees who are billable (not overhead) are being let go.

    Advice to Management

    Rare

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

    Pros

    Very well documented processes and procedures.

    Cons

    Pay is average for the market with no ability to grow your career. Promotions are based on need and since HP is a Hardware company and only offers services they just haven't designed their program to support climbing the ladder. Bonuses are based on how your account grows sales while in service we are doping more for less money year after year so bonuses are almost insulting.

    Advice to Management

    Since you make a lot of money from your people in the service area of the company it should be no problem giving them promotions even if it does cut a little from profits at the personal level. It is just a mere .xxxxx % of the overall for a company this large.

    Pros

    Great people in ES work is rewarding

    Cons

    Management needs a wake up call. Instead of working for the client management thinks client works for HP.

    Advice to Management

    Wake and realize that when you are being paid to provide services that they dont make the choices the customer does.
