    Current Employee - Business Development Manager in San Diego, CA

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

    Pros

    I work for a global business unit where there are tons of smart seasoned professionals to work with and to learn from by doing; people ensure everyone keeps and delivers the highest standard of work while performing in a highly complex global matrix organization.

    Cons

    All the management and strategic changes the company went through over the last decade has left a good number of bureaucrats in multiple decision making positions that compromise their team members results and company results by playing a closed guard personal agenda.

    Expressing disagreement or alternative and more effective ways of building and implementing strategy is frequently met with painful consequences, from your immediate manager, that could seriously hurt your career and slow down your growth withing the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Meg is doing a fantastic job that is starting to be reflected in the markets and noticed by customers. However, the company still has a long way to go until high-level managers align under a company wide mindset that leverages people's talent and creates a first class working environment.

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

    Pros

    HP does offer many opportunities and avenues for furthering one's career. The benefits are really good. It's not a bad company, just one in a tough spot that previous management put them in more than anything else.

    Cons

    With the current downsizing in progress there is a bit of unrest on who could be let go, even in departments that corporate raves about.
