Pros

Best atmosphere, very casual, Worked with really smart people who were very committed to doing a good job and doing the right thing. You weren't judged on you appearance, i.e. forced to wear a suit. My direct supervisor would come in shorts and flip-flops - as an extreme example. Great benefits, stability and ok pay. Work/life balance was good if you had an understanding manager.

Cons

If you are nonexempt, you tend to hit a glass ceiling, no pun intended, with little chance to jump over to the exempt side of things, unless you get an advanced degree or MBA, etc

    Pros

    Employees are treated with respect; HP has good management philosophy. Most of the managers who have been with the company for a long time follows the HP Way of management.

    Cons

    There has been lots of organizational and leadership changes over past couple of years. It seems like every few months an organizational change is announced.

    Advice to Management

    Need to bring the stability back to the management team.
