    Pros

    People, many different locations to work from, diversity valued, product portfolio is large and varied, can move within company to a new job fairly easily, some work from home options

    Cons

    HP is currently seeing some erosion to its historical bottom line profits, mobile devices encroaching on PC share and HP to date has not entered this market successfully, finance jobs being outsourced to other countries making advancement in finance career tougher

    Pros

    Potential to be great! Access to lots of opportunities within the company. Senior leadership does seem to be getting better.

    Cons

    Salary is terrible. They can't keep talent because they won't pay market rates. Benefits are expensive for such a large company. The company mission can be very cloudy that leaves employees guessing which way to go. Massive turnover and workforce reductions constant.

    Advice to Management

    Pick your market, focus there and let the employees know. Focus on keeping talent and growing it with the company, as opposed to watching good people walk out the door due to ridged HR policies that force people to leave for greener pastures. You want loyalty? Pay your employees. Concentrate on R&D not just buying up companies.
