HP is a good company at heart, but lost its way with too much drama and too many transitions.

Pros

Good people who care about customers are still at the core of HP values. The sheer size of the company affords a breadth of career and growth opportunities.

Cons

HP has done enough to encourage employee growth and movement across businesses and functions. People have become pigeon-holed in a particular business and unable to advance.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management has become to internally focused, need to refocus on customers and quality of offering that HP has long been known for. Need to do more to encourage employee movement across businesses and functions to develop a more versatile, skilled and loyal employee base.

    Pros

    Great people, unique position with retailers/partners/channel, good products and reach.

    Cons

    Outside management without touch of industry or HP, short term focus, and losing focus on people

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of people, stop bringing in outside talent and consultants as a source of change, bring back the good operational side of Hurd's push and decide what you want HP to be in 5 years.
