Fantastic in the early days. Tough to remain resilient during the many "transformations" and CEOs of the last 10+ years

I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Lots of opportunity to learn different businesses, customer segments, and to be located anywhere

Cons

Large company bureaucracy, ongoing headcount and budget cuts, CEO and sr mgmt turnover

Advice to ManagementAdvice

CEO and CMO turnover results in turmoil and is a distraction to employees, customers, and productivity. The Board can really help by being more selective in CEO selection and better managing the CEO and EC compensation pkgs (or exit pkgs), and by negotiating a better/fair price for acquisitions.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

    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.
