    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Professional environment, independence, self-directed work, ownership of results. Big push to convert employees to teleworkers.

    Cons

    HP Enterprise Services is in the middle of submitting its employees to the "perfect storm" of tough times. The combination of the economy, overseas outsourcing, and the aquisition of EDS, have all combined to make big layoffs inevitable. Big push to convert employees to teleworkers. Cost cutting environment is oppressive. I manage a multi-million dollar project and my company, one that makes printers, will not buy me a printer for my office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize the value that a PM with a long track record of dependable performance and great communication skills, and promote the heck out of that person. Don't nickle-and-dime them with cost cuts; give them some hardware perks for working for HP; a home office setup and mobile service. Make them proud to be a PM for HP, getting stuff done.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Knowledge sharing is good, and the rapport between colleagues is also good, and there are opportunities to work in different areas.

    Cons

    Subjected to economic changes and the management seems only interested to protect themselves at the expense of subordinates, thus very political.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to offer job stability and also to have interest of the employee in job and career development, and not to get too political.
