    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with top-notch engineers.

    Cons

    HP seems to have a hard time figuring out what business it is in. Many projects where cancelled after a few months.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out what business you are in and stick to it. Engineers will gain a better competitive edge if they work in the same area for a longer period of time.
    Return to an emphasis on quality. HP products I've used of late (laptops and printers) have decreased so much in quality that I won't buy them any more. This has hurt the value of the HP brand, and it will be difficult to re-earn the reputation HP used to have.
    Emphasize win/win situations for HP and its customers. Toward the end of my time at HP, HP only seemed to want to suck as much money out of customers as possible.
