Pros

Great engineers. Great focus on quality. Work life balance.

Cons

Cost cutting over the years has ruined R & D focus.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring in more technical managers than people managers. Try to have balance in terms of demographics in an orgalization.

    Pros

    Great environment, excellent coworkers, in some projects you can work from home. You will learn new stuff. Great learning tools.

    Cons

    Very difficult to be promoted. Even if they have open positions for the next level, they hire external candidates instead of start looking inside first.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote internal candidates for the new positions.

    Pros

    For a Services Business Development role HP provides enormous flexibility in performing your task. Significant opportunities to cross-sell services in a huge number of mature HP relationships. Leveraging these relationships can get you your numbers.

    Cons

    Very risk averse as a result of which it loses business to more nimble competitors in the services business. Have to deal with a lot of individual fiefdoms and navigate your way to gain access. Serious lack of communication across multiple service lines which often results in paving entry of competition.
