Company too big, too many acquisitions of late not integrated into company prorperly, not a lot of room for movement in job/job family.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on HP's core strengths, stop trying to be everything to everyone in the tech industry.

    Current Employee - Marketing Manager in Boston, MA

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great people working toward a common goal; insane levels of communication from top management all the way down - real focus on transparency and making sure that employees understand the direction, the messages and what is going on with the business.

    Cons

    We are an intensely diverse work group with a huge percentage of "teleworkers". The working from home is great but requires organization, drive and self discipline to "get it done" every day, without anyone looking over your sholder.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out how to get teams together annually for face-to-face meetings

    Pros

    Great people offerings and legacy. The company offers a wide range of technology solutions. The company also has a distinct market cache as the original "Garage" start-up.

    Cons

    The company is unstable at the moment but Meg Whitman is committed to improving the performance and perception of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    eliminate duplication
