Pros

You get an opportunity to move to different projects. You can learn new skills and gain new experiences.

Cons

AFter many years in an office I was forced to work from home with a remote group. I didn't like the isolation of working at home all of the time.

    Pros

    HP has some of the best HR technology in the industry. There are many remote workers and HR functions can be managed 100% remotely with no physical presence required. IT professionals enjoy working with latest technology and online training is excellent.

    Cons

    Often politics gets in the way of quality management. HP has ethics standards, but front-end managers sometimes work on the very edge of them or intimidate subordinates into possible violations. Unrealistic project schedules are common, and task estimates received from subordinates are often arbitrarily modified by the project management team without discussion. Be prepared to have tough skin.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication between matrix-ed managers would help morale and increase efficiency. Cost overruns can be avoided only by taking estimates submitted by non-management IT professionals more seriously. Instead of trying to fit the project estimates into pre-planned templates, use a more interactive agile model to develop sensible project estimates that team members believe they can meet before the project begins, then modify those estimates periodically based on observed progress.

    Pros

    HP enterprise security is industry leading and has a close knit community willing to help a fellow employee. Always room for advancements within the company.

    Cons

    Although well compensated, traveling can be very demanding and lengthy at times. Customers may be difficult to deal with, depending on the complexity of the work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be mindful of road-warriors and remote workers. Most of the time, we do not get to enjoy the corporate events.
