Current Employee - Product Manager

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

Pros

Everyone on our team and business unit was offered a good amount of training and provided many opportunities for growth. Training was both business and technology oriented, and individual developers were aligned towards their interests.

Cons

Had to shield developers from a larger corporate culture that wanted too much attention.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't make things self-service. Think about who you're taking time away from when you ask for people to do activities they rarely perform. Set up a service that people can actually use.

    Communicate with the employees more effectively.
    I was working there at the time of EDS acuisition, as a former EDS employee I can say that the whole murger process was ill-communicated and accompanied with numerous procedural and HR issues.
