I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

ProsNice, intelligent co-workers
Flexible working arrangements
Vacation days accumulatded each year

ConsContinuous layoffs
Transfers to inappropriate positions with no regard for affected employee's career path or happines
Salary cuts which are then returned as a "bonus"

Advice to Senior ManagementStop being robots who merely hand down directives from upper management
Do not force inappropriate career chanages on employees
Treat employees as people, not numbers or salaries,respectfully, or expect a mass exodous when the economy recovers

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
