Pros

HP is one of the great, iconic companies in Silicon Valley and around the world. With Meg Whitman at the helm, the company is finally getting back its spirit and culture. I love coming to work with such brilliant, passionate people every day. There's a renewed focus on customers, employees, innovation, and quality products, and it shows. Leaders seem to be inspired and working from the same playbook, following through on the commitments they make.

Cons

There's a long history of poor management and sprawl to overcome, and it's a lot of work to get the company on track.

Advice to Management

Keep up the great work, and the focus on being "One HP" rather than a collection of disconnected business units. Our current leadership team is doing a great job with communication and transparency with employees, customers, and the media. You have a team of amazing employees rooting for you and ready to contribute to this company's great story. Keep it up!

    Pros

    Many interesting areas to work in, if you have a good manager you will have some flexibility to choose interesting problems to work on. Lots of smart people to work with with varying backgrounds.

    Cons

    The previous CEOs have caused a lot of damage to the company. Hurd sacrificed the long term growth of the company (R&D) for short term profits. Apotheker caused a lot of confusion and damage by killing webOS. The current CEO is trying to improve things and get the culture back to where it used to be, but the jury is still out on if she will succeed.

    Advice to Management

    Stop reorganizing ever few months and give people some stability so they can get their work done.
