Pros

Open sources groups is very helpful and they have political influence over some parts of HP

Cons

Awful upper management. The articles about HP and their dysfunctional board is most definitely true

Advice to Management

Respect software engineers. Just because you folks don't understand open source doesn't mean that you should be cheap about hiring and making major investments into software

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - They owned massive market shares in software testing solutions, printers and servers.
    - If you are in sales and are given a good sales patch you can do well, otherwise you'll have a more difficult time.

    Cons

    - Politics, politics politics….and nepotism
    - Former CEOs and other senior execs have had very public and embarrassing scandals.

    Advice to Management

    Hard to say…there's a lot to be fixed. The HP ALM software suite is looking customers very quickly to newer and effective and cost efficient competitors.
