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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    Respectable pay, plenty of opportunity to find something interesting to do should you become bored or stagnant in a certain position.

    CEO is working diligently to improve HP's performance, and is not worried about pandering to the stock market in the short term. Given our previous CEOs (Mark Hurd) who focused ONLY on short-term profits and their own bank accounts, Meg Whitman is a breath of fresh air. The employees firmly and completely support Meg in her efforts.

    Cons

    Middle management (too many layers that provide no value to the company).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of about three layers of middle management. They exist ONLY to write reports about what their people have done, tell employees that they cannot spend any money, and travel around the world (at company expense) to meet with their direct reports. At the same time, I have teammates with whom I have worked for 10 years that I have never met in person.
