    Pros

    Talented engineers. By and large the people at HP are pretty great. These folks have the capacity to do great things.

    Cons

    Carly, Hurd. Hurd only seems tolerable because Carly was such a disaster. HP used to feature world-class R&D. Sadly this legacy is in gradual decay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Read the "HP Way". Learn to respect R&D. There are great people there. Let them do their jobs and thrive.

    Pros

    HP is great for people with low career aspirations and strong motivation to work short hours. This is great for family life and the expectations are low.

    Cons

    I joined HP around 2000. When I started, as a hw engineer, there were many opportunities to innovate and many people that I looked up to. In the last ten years all the main talent from the server division is gone and the moral is very low. HP is shifting to a Dell model of low-innovation and low-cost. That will be very dissapointing to anyone that is a star performer and wants to further their career. Bueracracy is high and individual contributors make very ilttle impact. In this era, it seems that the more interesting work is being done by our most progressive customers (google, amazon, msn, etc).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Weed out the people that under-perform and pain the remainder better. Come up with a plan to retain and reward strong technical contributors.
