    Pros

    Some good people to work with, good relationship with HP, free coffee, decent lab equipment to play with and learn on, nice museum of ancient HP junk to show off.

    Cons

    Several smoke, in the building, nasty smell. Micromanagement, if someone is a couple minutes late they call to remind of business hours. Want everyone in office to watch at all time.

    Advice to Management

    Quit smoking, it is embarrassing when customers or clients come in and you can see on their face how disgusted they were by the stink.

  3. "Very Disappointing Work Experience"

    Pros

    Time for working in the lab with new equipment and software; number of opportunities to play golf with customers; relative freedom of schedule

    Cons

    Management does not keep promises to its employees; micro-management is over-the-top; management acts in a passive-aggressive manner; raises are practically non-existent; no 401k or other retirement benefts; expensive and lousy health insurance; no incentives or acknowledgement of extra efforts given; no benefits for achieving new certifications or training; management makes promises to customers without checking with the employees that have to fulfill the promises first; no regular performance reviews; lack of internal communication; management is very difficult to get along with; engineering staff is managed by sales department instead of a dedicated, trained and experienced technical manager

    Advice to Management

    Keep your promises to employees; show respect and appreciation to the employees that make contributions to success of the company; plan better to be proactive instead of reactive; develop a benefits package to hire and retain valuable and talented employees; do not set customer expectations at a certain level when the company is not staffed properly to fulfill those promises
