I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Very talented group of people

Cons

Military like structure places more emphasis on reporting than revenue producing activity behind it , Grecian style politics stifle productivity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get back to basics, empower front end sales by giving them their time back and booking no more than 20% of their time on accounting./ admin / reporting/training. Lets Sales Sell!

    Pros

    Efficient, global marketing and delivery system means HP will always be a top competitor in many markets. Meg Whitman may be the right person to get this company really moving again.

    Cons

    Carly Fiorina's time as CEO and the merger with Compaq really changed the culture of HP. The focus on employees has never returned, and as a result, a company that used to have employees that were willing to work long hours and to "do whatever it took" is largely a thing of the past.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Until HP management starts looking at employees as one of their key assets, HP will never crack the top 100 places to work lists. I think as a result, HP won't attract or retain the right talent to make HP truly one of the world's great companies as it was in the 1970s through the start of the 21st century.
