Pros

Great people (especially long time employees and new college hires). Good large corporation benefits.

Cons

Not much news here, disfunctional and mediocre Board of Directors, averaage senior management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cut the overhead & management fat. Eliminate &/or reduce the Business Groups & Units stovepipes. Allocate more resources to innovation and customer facing resources.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
