    Pros

    - No micro-managers - you have a lot of freedom to get the work done as you see fit
    - Lots of responsibility for those that step up
    - Talented and helpful co-workers
    - Flexible work arrangements
    - Pay for performance - annual bonus for those who do well

    Cons

    - If you don't have the stomach for job insecurity, you might do better someplace else. This situation seems to be improving, however
    - Top performers bear most of the workload which can be daunting at times
    - The senior management ranks is a revolving door although Meg Whitman seems to be bringing more stability now
    - The company is very big which can get in the way sometimes - hard to know everything that is going on

    Advice to Management

    - Take a hard look at the delivery function and be sure that we have enough trained people to deliver
    - Stop thinking of HP as a printer company along - lead with services

    HP is like a boat. Your happiest days are the day you join and the day you leave.

    Pros

    You can learn and get some good experience if you hit the right place. There are some very talented individual contributors.

    Cons

    Management is insane and you are just a biological robot destined to toil long hours. They have insane rules that make it almost impossible to change or even complete a project. They are not in the real world with the dire situation facing IT or even the businesses.

    Advice to Management

    Please leave and work for our competition. That's the best thing you can do for us.
