    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have an awesome package but I cannot say the same for most other employees.
    Flexibility of work e.g. Work from home (assuming your position allows for this)
    Transport allowance (RM 350)
    Mixed cultures
    Awesome workmates
    Campus will have a really good looking cafeteria
    PLENTY of parking (i guess when you have attrition and no backfills, you're bound to have plenty of space)
    If you ever get to work with the Network Tower, that group is awesome.

    Cons

    Highest echelons of senior management tend to bicker about numbers, to the point of subordinates subtly changing numbers to fit the appropriate requirements
    A majority of managers tend to sacrifice their subordinates to save themselves
    Health screening is not available for normal employees.
    Some of the remuneration benefits can seem extremely paltry when compared to other MNCs
    Blindly following set numbers.
    Higher management tends to blow a lot of smoke and assumes subordinates do not have much information on the going ons.
    Not much space for growth. If it's a place you want to sit down, be complacent and remain stagnant, this may be the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to be much more transparent and have a more detailed view of how you achieve your numbers. Saying YES all the time to your higher ups, even when what the require is ridiculous only makes your employees wonder why you are not sticking up for us.
    Looking at numbers and not understanding how the people on the ground work, may eventually be your downfall.
    You need to understand that retention of talent is important. I've seen one too many talented individuals leave when that could have been avoided by prompt decisions to remedy the issue.
    The idea of offering a better position/career progression/remuneration to an employee on their way out is not effective. It should be offered when the employee is doing their best performance. Wrong retention strategy.
    Your townhalls are a lot of smoke and mirrors, and deflecting answers seem to be common place. That needs to change.
