    Pros

    Employees are great people to work with. They are smart, generous, and want to do a great job. They are the company's greatest asset.

    Cons

    Company has lost its edge and lost its way. Under Carly Fiorina, there was too much emphasis on image and not enough on the substance behind it. Under Mark Hurd, the goal was to cut as much as possible. Meg Whitman may have come on the scene when it is too late to be able to save the behemoth.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good luck. Ignore quarter-to-quarter market changes. Develop the company for the long term by investing in the people. Maybe you'll get back the awesome culture the past few CEOs have shredded.

    Former Employee - Services Information Developer II in Dayton, OH
    Former Employee - Services Information Developer II in Dayton, OH

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

    Pros

    Recognizeable brand, compensation/benefits are competitive for remaining employees.

    Cons

    EDS was not perfect, but as HP Enterprise Services there does not seem to be a chance for growth under a parent company with such a poor record managing acquisitions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spin off Enterprise Services and concentrate on printer cartridges. HP stock price at this time of review is half the price EDS stock was at time of acqusition. How on earth did you manage that?
