Pros

flexible work hours, good salary, and intelligent colleagues. Looking to the "HP Way" is good for the culture and keeps stress minimal.

Cons

unclear vision from the top, insecurity about long-term support of Labs projects. A sense that a lot of the IP developed is licensed to partners rather than providing a path for HP itself to develop its own full-stack products.

Advice to Management

Be clear about long-term support of Labs projects

    Pros

    Flexibility in work hours, good compensation and benefits, since it's a large company there are many job opportunities.

    Cons

    Process of selection of any new manager is not clear, friendship with the hiring manager is a key factor to be selected.

    Advice to Management

    Allow others outside your inner circle of friends to apply and get the job as new managers.
