A company in the midst of a reinvention, they treat their employees well, but lack focus.

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

Pros

Engineers are treated well, there are avenues for promotion, and there are smart people around. The work life balance can be good, and there's more than lip service paid to the HP open door policy.

Cons

The company lacks focus, and that can be wearing. There's a general malaise about the future. It's a corporate bureaucracy, so things that should be fast aren't. The corporate structure in technology is academically oriented, so people with non-traditional backgrounds can have problems advancing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I'm not sure what to do at this point but stay the course. It seems that selling PCs and spinning off printers is off the table, so our options are limited. HP needs to get better at building software.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    They had some pretty decent perks. Company cars were available for those in customer-facing roles. Telecommuting was a nice perk as well.

    Cons

    Constant reorganization. Every year there was a reorganization that mostly was unproductive and a tremendous distraction for the work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop the never ending allocation of sales accounts for account managers.
