Pros

A large organization with many resources, functions, events, if you can find the right contact. Been part of a group working on a cool technology that kept interest going.

Cons

A large organization with a good layer of bureaucracy, unhealthy doze of politics at top level. In and out of hiring freezes took a great hit on team and morale.

Advice to Management

Stop doing erratic decisions, and smooth out your hiring / layoff cycles. Too many layers of management. Better segment your business as there are many unrelated parts that share infrastructure that is designed only for the fattest cow. Need to become much more nimble.

    Pros

    Health insurance, 401K matching, Industry clout with HP (generally, not including recent misteps), Home/work flexibility

    Cons

    Horrible raises in comparison to market, Poor employee development, Bad management decisions, Employee morale seems to be continually getting worse, Continuous strategic redirection, Internal movement / promotion is possible but with grossly under-market salaries (when internally moving -- external hires brought in at market-value rates)

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent.
    Realize without your employees championing HP (and their products/services) thanks to their satisfaction with the organization, HP will become nothing.
