Pros

Large company with lots of room to move around
Many areas will allow very flexible work arrangements eg working from home to various degrees depending on current management chain

Cons

Salaries aren't the highest
There is a lot of emphasis on hiring in lower cost areas which makes it harder for folks in places like CA

Advice to Management

Keep up the momentum towards thinking of employees more as people and valuable resources than commodities.

    Pros

    HP is one of the best companies to work for if you can appreciate professional development. Although the current business environment is challenging, HP remains a place for top quality people.

    Cons

    The business environment for the IT and printing industry is challenging. Like all IT companies, the road ahead is uncertain as tablets and mobile devices surge in popularity.

    Pros

    Great team work, plenty of opportunities for advancement, lots of diversity.

    Cons

    With acquisitions (Compaq, EDS, etc.), HP struggled to integrate cultures. That led to more divisiveness, in an already-siloed company.

    Advice to Management

    Revert back to culture of Bill and Dave days. Colleagiality, teamwork, flat management layers, opportunity for advancement, integration with local communities.
