Current Employee - Software Development Manager

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Flexible time
Huge amount of assets to leverage from across business units
chance to work around world class and highly capable engineers
Opportunity to work on very challenging projects and products (Hardware development side)
HP is a very reputable and admired company.
Innovation is at the heart of the company and we live that everyday.

Cons

Company is too big (320k plus employees)
Operation processes such IT and HR may not apply fully to each business, sometime frustrating to deal with.
Expectations are too high company wide so even delivering exceptional products the company gets measured against itself which hides relatively small victories with respect of the whole.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop buying companies and re-invest internally where the innovation is coming from.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Stable place, always hiring. You will learn quite a bit quickly, pay attention during training; especially where the various knowledge bases are, as the company is so gigantic system and app info is scattered everywhere from Sharepoints to propitiatory databases.

    Cons

    Sometimes management is absent from front line issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dump your HPSM ticketing system, it's horrible.
