    Pros

    Great assets and a history to be proud of. Had a very strong knowledge management culture from the HP and Digital legacy. Huge opportunity to advance and learn a lot in one of the worlds largest IT companies.

    Cons

    Focused to much in acquisitions rather than innovation, leading to mismanaged and expensive product lines over time as the minds behind the innovations dropped of. Huge organisation leading to large overhead that killed the margins and competitive advantage in the services business.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to the roots. HP is a product company, not a services company. Get behind the policy of being first or second in every product and market segment you compete in.

    Pros

    I got a Chinese manager at first, then transferred to a Singaporean, then an American, at last an Indian

    Cons

    I met the worst manager in my life in the last few months in HP, so I decided to leave, although HP is a great company.

    Advice to Management

    less Indian
