    Pros

    Employee benefits, compensation, and amount of resources....

    Cons

    Too complicated and big. HP never integrates the companies it acquires well and the resources overlap one another. By far the most complicated and frustrated company I've ever worked for. HP also doesn't know what it wants to be when it grows up. They've had 3 CEO's in the past 2 years, bought a sfw company for 10 billion, sold off it's pc division, brought it back, killed it's palm division, on and on. HP was a joke when I was there and their customers believe this as well. Support was horrendous for my clients. Management was even worse. Trying to bring EMC mentality into old school HP will kill their salesforce and they'll go to better companies without the stress of selling a 'dog'. New Hire training was laughable. Culture was horrible too. Much better companies out there...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit building barriers for your employees. It shouldn't take 2 days to quote a customer on a product. Internal sales systems and tracking are an absolute nightmare.

    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.
