I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Career opportunities are abundant; caliber of talent is generally high; very entrepreneurial culture that can be empowering. It is a very good place to work, build relationships, and deliver some of the most complex and valuable technology to the world.

Cons

History of major strategic blunders; rotating leadership; bureaucratic; declining revenues. The pace of change is intimidating: i have had countless supervisors and organizational adjustments.

Advice to Management

Focus on succession planning/grooming for future leadership roles; agility without a vision is a recipe for chaos.
