    Pros

    Great access to deeply skilled software development resources. Some of the best people in the business.

    Cons

    Not enough consistency in vision coming from senior management. Any vision that does get set consistently never gets communicated accurately to the people in the trenches who must perform the implementation due to the # of leadership levels in such a large organization. I was in Enterprise Services, which has great potential and great sales, but due to inconsistency in leadership across the company, and poor communication, the entire division is completely dysfunctional. Furthermore, the organization’s vision within Enterprise Services has changed so many times since HP purchased EDS that the internal accounting systems have not - and cannot - keep up with the personnel and organizational changes that have occurred, and thus no middle manager or senior leadership can ever get an accurate account of the financials (P&Ls) for the organizations they are responsible. There is virtually no accuracy in the financial accounting systems anymore, and everyone in the company is making decisions based on completely inaccurate or absent financial data.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a business strategy, and stick with it for the long run. Minimize senior leadership changes. Declare war in the accuracy of the financial and accounting systems. Improve communication accuracy up and down every connection in the leadership chain.
