    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    - High salary bands
    - Good healthcare options
    - Recognized name in industry

    Cons

    - Inefficient, wasteful, disorganized company with very slow/poor execution
    - Immense, paralyzing bureaucracy
    - Lots of in-fighting between departments, to the detriment of the customer
    - Zero company culture (sea of cubicles with zombie like clock-punchers)
    - Senior management is highly detached from reality. Also difficult to trust.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut 2/3rds of the workforce and drastically streamline the product portfolio. Focus on professional services and continue with enterprise servers and networking, taking a page from IBM's book. Fix your Cloud Computing strategy quickly, it is broken. Get rid of all of the 15+ yr "veterans" who are zombie-like, no longer passionate about their work, and non-productive. FIx your highly bureaucratic, unpleasant work environment. Find ways to appeal to a younger, more vibrate workforce like Google, Facebook, Apple, etc. to attract new talent.
