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

    Work / Life balance, though employees have been asked to report to offices now.

    Cons

    There are so many people that do so little, no executive vision is ever executed because of middle management ineptitude.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make things less hierarchical and let individual contributors have input into hiring and advancement, direction and strategy.
