15 years that started out great but got progressively worse as time goes on.

Account Manager (Current Employee) Detroit, MI

ProsVery diversified - you can find a new career without changing companies
Strong leadership in many markets (X86 servers in particular)
1000s of fabulous people who work with you
A good place to start your IT career

ConsClueless senior management - brain dead board of directors
Miserly, and getting worse year by year - dedicated to not paying one cent more than the minimum
Market cap / shareholder value is In an absolute free fall
Cannot seem to leverage a cohesive solution that uses all the many reat products and services
Drive customers crazy with annual (or more frequent) account rep changes and inability to do the most basic business functions (quoting, customer support in particular)

Advice to Senior ManagementBOD - give Meg Whitman the time needed to clean up this mess - HP can't afford another new CEO
Meg Whitman - start over with USA ESSN Sales management (VP level) there are fantastic people in the middle management ranks who can run circles around the current VPs

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
