    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for 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.

    Pros

    Great culture, high trust and accountability. Its a great company, which promotes very high work balance, at times detrimental to the organization.

    Too many org changes, too often can be disruptive to work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure that org changes dont impact employees too oftem
