    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A great group of people to work with in a team selling environment. People love the company and are willing to put in the hours to help win new client logos or expand existing business relationships.

    Cons

    Management was focused on cutting costs. R&D was greatly impacted by this lack of long term vision and now HP trails many of their competitors and are in declining markets they once led (see Tablet growth vs. declining PC sales). Have focused way too much on hardware and have let Software/Services trail other key competitors (see IBM).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company has lost direction, employee morale is at it lowest levels and you need to get back to listening to the field as well as your largest clients.
