    Pros

    Flexible location/ work hours- most job positions are given the option of working remotely as long as the job is getting done. In a company of this size, opportunities for advancement or career changes come up more often.

    Cons

    Previous leadership regimes cut research and development to the bone and tried to "buy" technology through acquisitions rather than by developing organically. As a result HP is behind the tech curve and now struggling to re-invent itself. Morale is improving but still quite low.

    Advice to Management

    Come up with a growth strategy and stick to it. Avoid further acquisitions until all the recent buys have been fully assimilated and stabilized.

    Pros

    Ability to work remotely, as long as you can connect to 800 numbers for conference calls and have high speed internet access.
    Salaries are decent. Enables you to work with WW organization.

    Cons

    Lots of churn and chaos with frequent reorganizations. Big organizations like HP are not agile; tools & resources are often outdated or adequate; plenty of red tape and bureaucracy. Low morale among employees. Fear of speaking out or suggesting alternatives to management does not make for a healthy work environment. Sadly the corporate culture and values HP used to have are long gone and HP is no longer seen as an innovator.

    Advice to Management

    Reduce the bureacracy. Spend wisely - make sure the budget guidelines apply to all parts of the organization and really fix the internal issues, don't just spend millions slapping lipstick on the pig.
