    Pros

    Great People who really care about the customer

    Cons

    Can be difficult to get things done in a large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go back to company wide profit sharing to increase collaboration. Figure out how to allow the informal internal networks like the professions influence the formal lines of development. Get IT integrated back into the company lines of business rather than thinking they are an outsourced group. Encourage cross-organizational job moves for all levels.

    Current Employee - Technical Consultant in Montgomery, AL

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with
    Somewhat flexible work environment
    Training
    Established company never hurts the resume
    I do believe the new CEO is on the right track

    Cons

    If you can't figure out the insanity that is their internal website get ready for pain
    They somewhat separated the technical careers paths from the business path. Now there is nothing but bean counters calling the shots.
    So big it's hard to get help or push anything forward
