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

Pros

The latest management is working hard to correct the problems created by the previous short term focused management teams. Rational behavior is coming back and truely valuing the workforce is emerging. It is a large company that provides opportunities in a wide variety of areas and enables one to explore career opportunities in areas that are not necessarily the focus of one's education.

It varies from manager to manager but generally teams pull together and work to make all the members successful.

Cons

High overhead decision making. Mid and lower management are not well empowered to make key decisions. There is a tendency to overestimate deliveries and underestimate time needed to complete them.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allow your middle management to make decisions again.
