    Pros

    Hp has good brand recogntion

    Cons

    Compared to other software firms No Strong direction or ethos Variable pay and reward structure seems fairly negligible Very bureaucratic and process heavy for everything Little day to day perks, subsidized food, coffee cups and etc

    Advice to Management

    Actions matter, talking about investing in the business is more then stock buy backs and layoffs. The software is lacking true identity and vision, it is just figuring out new buzz words to try to sell yesterdays news

    Pros

    Interesting products. With right / smart management can be progress in the future - with out appropriate management way to nowhere.

    You will utilize wide range of knowledge and learn well balancing proportion of IT and Telecom.

    Advice to Management

    Management level very from one to another person. People (employee and managers) playing a lot of "job security" tricks ..

    Pros

    lots of work flexibility, interesting technology, with a big push and support from the wider HP. great office locations, and a lot of investment in training/personal development

    Cons

    too many product issues lead to more discussions with irate clients than selling to new ones. too many product divisions and sales groups leads to huge internal collaboration problems. Base compensation below industry average
