Pros

Participating in the challenges of a turn-around - that seems to be gaining traction (2/2013). From the inside, it appears that concerns about the ability of senior management to grasp and deal with basic organic problems have been met.

Cons

Some of the challenges of the turn-around include dealing with changes in management direction and changes in staffing.

    Pros

    A lot of resources available; lots of opportunities for growth if you have the time to do it.

    Cons

    Don't hope to get a salary increase every year, and if you do it's a measly 1%

    Pros

    Huge company, so there are many opportunities. Most teams and engineers I've ever worked with are very open and willing to help. Many programs available to boost your career and knowledge.

    Cons

    Upper management with unreasonable deadlines for product readiness. Very large company, so it's easy to get lost in the crowd. The culture has changed significantly for the worse. Everyone talks about the "good ol' days" when HP was Compaq. I'm lucky that I have a great team and good direct manager. Friends from other teams have had a much worse experience.

    Advice to Management

    Give us reasonable product deadlines. Compensate us better for all the work we put in to hit these unreasonable deadlines. I don't get the feeling that management cares about the well being of their employees. Stop hiring all these contractors out of the country! HP doesn't sponsor so they eventually quit within a year. Stop firing and hiring...this is counter productive. Do not ever do a contractor furlough again, because this caused many to quit. Again, this is counter productive.
