    Pros

    -HP provides internal training for employees and does not expect you to take time outside of work to do so. Even if you work many extra hours or on weekends, management compensates you with extra vacation days for your time
    -The majority of people who work there are very nice and friendly. The managers are fair and good about giving feedback.
    -Most managers are flexible, which allows you to set your own time schedule as long as you get your work done and attend meetings on time.
    -The work environment and company culture is pretty relaxed and easygoing. There are no strict rules regarding work attire.
    -Since HP is so large, there are a lot of organizations and committees you can join in order to meet people. They also host many social events for both young professionals and for those with families.
    -Benefits are good compared to other companies. Having a gym onsite is also nice since you can work out straight after work or during lunch.

    Cons

    -It's hard to see overall impact of your work since the organization is so large.
    -The salaries are quite low relative to other large corporations in this industry.
    -There are no assigned desks or cubicles. You have to get there early in order to sit in a nice area or someone might take your spot.

    Pros

    Lots of growth happening. Layoffs are in the papers, but the company is in a transition period for the better. Meg is a great leader.

    Cons

    Extremely hard to get normal things done like procurement, staffing, and using off the shelf software. The company is so big that the checks and balances, even though are meant to protect, cause more harm than good. I've seen very bright people give up and leave because of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to make the right changes for the future.
