    Pros

    One might have said the people aren't bad, but the trouble is that so many of those people have left. Local management is not necessarily unreasonable, but they have no power to fix the problems that emanate straight from the top.

    Cons

    The executives at hp appear to view all employees as inchangeable head count; a mere cost to be minimized. Salaries have suffered. Raises are truly black comedy. Benefits have been continually cut back. Don't expect to get "competitive" compensation in any form here, although you'll be told repeatedly by HR that their benefits are "competitive". Hiring has also suffered as they can't offer truly competitive pay and benefits. Despite this, they're still constantly looking for more blood to squeeze from the turnip that is their employee base. Even their internal employee discounts are laughable; you can usually find those goods cheaper at actual retailers.

    Advice to Management

    Stop screwing your employees. It hasn't shown a tangible benefit to your shareholders.
