    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Some people think HP is a great company so it could look good on your resume.

    Cons

    HP does not understand what business it is in, nor does it understand how things get done. The mentality is to set metrics and measure everything. Since the understanding of the business is so poor the metrics are poorly chosen and the consequent measurements indistinguishable from random. Very cold-blooded place to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what business you want o be in and sell off the rest. Somebody can figure out how to make money out of most of the things you now ignore.

    Doesn't Recommend
