    Pros

    The people that were purchased from EDS are, for the most part, great to work with.

    Cons

    The leadership could care less about trying to treat employees on an account level fairly - not even sure they know there are people behind the numbers. When the economy improves, I would expect many to move elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Too late, but the EDS purchase was largely the people and their experience, but a great many are just bidding their time.

  2. Good in the beginning...

    Pros

    It's a very dynamic environment and you'll always be dealing with new projects, new technologies, new people. Can't get bored!

    Cons

    No clear career path; recognition is usually a pat on the back and bonus is almost inexistent and when you earn it, it sucks; never sat down with my leader to discuss where I can get on my career inside HP; never participated on a formal training on a class to learn new things because I've never had time to do so and my client would not wait for me to be trained and my leader would always press me to "learn as you go" instead of attending classes; etc.

    Advice to Management

    - Get interested in your employee's aspirations
    - Help him plot the course to accomplish the employee's objectives/goals on the company
    - Recognize the accomplishments accordingly (not just a pat on the back, but bonus AND promotions with salary increase!)
