    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Paycheck. Benefits typical of a large corporation. I asked to be put at the top of the WFR list and managed to get out with a bag of cash.

    Cons

    Toxic. Forced ratings kill integrity and competence of work groups. Clueless good-old-boy management, pointless processes, embarrassingly poor and duplicative tools. No office supplies. The physical environment provided had all the charm and modernity of a gulag. Heard from several former co-workers that management has reneged on promises to them. They figure the employees have nowhere else to go in this economy, and if they do, they don't fit HP's preferred management style. Only consider if you have no other options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    At least Meg hasn't shot off any major appendages (yet). But stand by to pull the cords on your golden parachutes; this bird is on fire, and it isn't a phoenix.

    Pros

    discounts on HP merch, although not that much.

    Cons

    Management by intimidation, Forced ranking review system. No annual raises or bonuses the entire time i worked there. everyone that has been there long term was with Compaq and is in denial that things havent changed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reward your employees hard work, instead of asking more and more and giving nothing in return.
