    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You definitely get to touch a lot of different technology here. The experience is great for your resume.

    Cons

    With all the spin offs and merges (HP to HPE then CSC+HPE = DXC)No raises, budget cuts which turn into work force reductions (ie lay-offs) often. Lay-offs have happened at least 5 times in the 3 years I was there and finally got me. A lot of red tape and administrative extra's which were unneeded.

    Advice to Management

    Show value in your employees, give raises to keep good talent.
