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

Pros

Big company. Lot of opportunities to move amongst the organizations and enhance different skill sets. Employees are treated with great respect. Good work life balance.

Cons

Big company. What you get depends on which organization and the which pocked you end up working for and with.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Long term focus is very important. For a product development company, it is very important to understand that it takes vision and time to deliver unique products that solve real customer problems.

    Pros

    Challenging work; top notch talent; abundance of opportunities

    Cons

    HP doesn't know how to treat their service segment. They are still very much a product company at heart and that mindset manifests itself in all aspects.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to better manager (and appreciate) the service business you paid $14 bil for in 2008.
