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

    Pros

    There are still a lot of very good, very talented engineers working there.

    Cons

    They cut costs everywhere, even when it doesn't make sense. They, for example, sold our site and moved us into a rental where there isn't enough room for everyone to work in a productive environment. They cram us 4-6 employees per large cubicle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give us our cubes back. Stop off-shoring jobs. Start investing in R&D before it is too late.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The group I worked in had fantastic, smart and talented people.

    Cons

    It can get very difficult doing anything that requires cross-business-unit collaboration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Solve the BU collaboration issues. HP has amazing talent that gets drowned by politics and complicated processes. Make it easy for people and organizations within the company to be successful.
