I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Amazing co-workers and managers (lower level - managers and directors). HP has a knack for hiring wonderful people. The company is very flexible and I work from home 100%, though that will change in the coming year.

Cons

Senior management has no clue what they're doing. They lead by trial and error, never giving their changes enough time to gain traction.
Layoffs are constant, perks have been significantly reduced and employee morale is therefore low.
HP does not pay competitively and it is difficult to get any significant raises, even as an employee who is consistently rated highly. I know of administrative assistants at other companies who have higher salaries than me!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pick a path and stick with it longer than 6 months. HP is a huge company and turnaround will take time. You guys are like impatient toddler's. And pay your people competitively.
