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

Pros

HP has been a great place to work at for many years, good people, market leader in printing, and sometimes great and challenging projects.

Cons

While the theory was to hire cheap engineering off-shore to do the mundane, run-of-the-mill tasks for each release while the engineering in the states was then free to innovate -- I don't think it has worked that way in practice. It seems the off-shore people would rather innovate. Meanwhile market share is shrinking, wages stagnate while CEO's come and go with huge salaries and golden parachutes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The new CEO, seems to be making the right noises, but is it just talk?
