Pros

Blue Chip Company
Job Security
Flexible Employer
Good opportunities if your under the right manager

Cons

Lack of resources with the correct skill sets assigned to projects
Project delivery is focused on payment milestones rather than quality
Employer does not invest in employees enough
Salary packages are not in line with industry standards

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Act earlier... there's a huge opportunity to improve deliverables, be more efficient, etc but senior management always seems to get involved 6 months too late and by then there damage is often irreversible!

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    HP bought Autonomy for a fabulously high price, which was pretty cool for the UK taxman and for long-standing employees of that fabulously daring UK software house.

    Cons

    Board volatility makes it impossible to act effectively on industry trends and big decisions. Autonomy could have turned into a great thing if they hadn't then fired those who sponsored the acquisition within 2 weeks.

    Bureaucratic company culture destroys souls and makes the actual art of "doing" near impossible at times.

    Weakness in middle management has destroyed the Aurasma business from the inside - rather than spinning it out in the consumer space, it is now being wasted on spin-ins to HP hardware for marketing points and novelty value at best. Such a waste.

    Meg Whitman terrifies me and I imagine she drinks human blood.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pointless to offer as they have no ability to act.
