Pros

Great breadth and a wide variety of opportunities to develop your career, generally co-workers are the best you will find anywhere at a large company.

Cons

A lack of leadership and opaque layers of management can leave you feeling lost and under-appreciated. There is still talk about the HP Way, and many company policies to ensure fair and ethical treatment of employees and customers, but it is very easy and common to feel that problems are recognized, not solved, and there is a general drift toward mediocrity. A company that could be the best, but can be very disappointing if you are truly in search of excellence.

Advice to Management

Unfortunately, the company needs a refresh at the highest levels, starting with the board. There is plenty of talent and experience at the individual contributor level.

    Pros

    free food at their hq
    lots of technical challenges
    If you are able to get on a smaller project, you can be left alone for a while and be a lot more efficient. If you are on a flagship product, expect a lot of time wasting with meetings

    Cons

    management is lacking a purpose or direction. they are still stuck in the past and the heavy processes are killing innovation
