Unorganized, inconsistent, too many unqualified cooks in the kitchen

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Looks good on a resume. I have been offered a better job and better pay with another company because of my experience here, so I am thankful for that. I have already put my two weeks notice in.

Cons

At my particular location, the pay is not that great and there is not a lot of opportunity for growth, even though I have been promoted 4 times is 2.5 years. Career path at HP seems to consist of a lot of "lateral moves" where your responsibilities increase ten fold, but your pay does not.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Communicate a clear vision to your employees and stick to it. Reward people based on performance and not favoritism.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    It's HP -- birthplace of Silicon Valley, stalwart high tech icon.

    Cons

    It's no longer "HP". HP MUST find it's way. If you are charasmatic and a turn-around guru, HP needs you. It must reinvent itself; looking outside has not proven successful; maybe it's time to bring back some former, sound leaders.
