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

    Pros

    Great compensation. Work in an awesome scale. Solve problems you won't see anywhere else. Work-life balance issues mostly well handled.

    Cons

    The whole huge organization is very siloed. Even their silos have silos. Constant upper management turnover. 10 year old acquisitions still haven't completely integrated. Many people just marking time trying to keep their paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the upheaval and insecurity is making your people crazy. When did "management by walking around" become "management by blaming someone else"?
