    Pros

    HP offers a solid collaborative environment, casual dress code, and work-from-home or wherever is most convenient policy. There are good opportunities for advancement IF you have good connections in the company. Marketing yourself in this giant company requires all the top skills you need when competing in the World Wide Web.

    Cons

    There are some good managers and then some really awful managers. I have had both. Do your homework before you accept a position and find out what others who work for or have previously worked for the manager think of him or her. You have opportunities to educate yourself in your position but that training is completely up to you to develop, advocate and execute. If you are in a position remotely associated with sales, expect that there will be periods when you have no life outside of work. The best you can hope for is to have a manager and co-workers who understand the need for give-and-take and are lenient about time off when personal needs outweigh career needs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become crisp in your own thought about what HP should be when it grows up. Are we a hardware/software vendor, a technology outsourcer or a professional consulting services business? Whatever we are, decide and then communicate clearly to employees, the market and influencers. We are at an inflection point in IT history. HP has one chance to get this right.
