    a great experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsHP has the people and experience to compete with any other company in the business! Megs recent focus on business fundamentals is a good thing but...

    ConsAfter business goes well, They lose focus on basic market fundamental - ie Storage and Server business strategy. As a result ,they lost market leadership They are playing the me-too game instead of being a market leader. They need to figure out how to work without product line Silo's.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHP Culture has be diluted by all the acquisitions in recent years. Get back to basics - how do you lead the market place strategically, put a plan in place and go do it.
