    Pros

    Good working environment
    Colleagues are helpful
    Very Process oriented company, employ friendly org. Employees treated with dignity.
    Very good learning curve, and encouraged for new learning.

    Cons

    Appraisal system is not understood.
    Sometimes you can see colleagues laying back more than expected.

    Advice to Management

    Try identifying employees who work good by your own means, but not by how they present themselves.

    Pros

    Was a job I had for over 4 years during the "Great Recession" it was nice to have a job.

    Cons

    Paid 20 -30K below median pay scale. Treated very poorly. Very low scale on the job training. Felt like a number. Some areas were managed like a fraternity/high school clique. Management by fear. Annual pay increases did not occur three out of the 4 years employed there. Never felt as if the ship was being steered in the right direction.

    Case and point, HP had 3 CEO's in two years. HP has not come up with any new innovations to propel them forward or capitalize on any of their company purchases. Examples include: the BILLIONS of dollars used to purchase EDS, that was a bust. The stock prices went in the toilet over that one, and the Autonomy debacle also has caused serious doubts about board decisions. They spent more money making bad financial decisions when they should have been pumping those monies into R and D, Management training. and annual salary increases. Definitely not a good employment choice.

    Advice to Management

    Reinvent from the top down, make good financial decisions, accept blame and take personal responsibility when making any decision. Listen to your employees more deeply, and pay them fairly based on the work level and results provided. Pray that your company is around in 50 years or someone like Oracle will own you.
