I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than a year)

Pros

There are some very hardworking, knowledgeable and dedicated people at this company and the company is truly trying to turn itself around.

Cons

A sense of direction has not filtered down to employees and the fact that the announced lay offs (27,000) are coming in phases of a period of years has leached the life out of the employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Finish the lay offs now and start the building.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    - Recognized name
    - Respected company and culture (in the past but not currently)
    - Located all over the globe
    - New CEO (Whitman) is at least trying to do the right things and is looking at the longer term

    Cons

    - Services business does not know what they are doing or how to do it
    - Much of the best services talent is going out the door or planning to
    - Has become a joke in the services segment

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Get more in touch with client facing employees
    - Think more than just a couple days or a week ahead, get a longer term view
    - Quit focusing on how good HP was in the past and fix the R&D and employee morale issues that plague HP today

    Pros

    Great people to work with, interesting technology.

    Cons

    Very rocky and unstable for the past 2 years. They have just laid off 27,000 employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get it together! The past 2 years have been a mess and stock prices are plummeting.
