An incredibly bloated company with very top-heavy management. Working for HP either as a contractor
, or employee
can be a flashback to the old
style days of the military-industrial complex
- with strict
rate structures, lots of paperwork
, and a whole bunch of
people who sit around not doing very much.
Still, if you work for this company for any amount of time,
it may be a refreshing breather from Silicon Valley
's stress farm way of life. The HP way
is one of treating your employee's non-work life with respect with lots of flex-time
, and maternal leave
. A warning though: the dilbert principle
applies in full force here!
