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

Pros

Worked with incredible people on fascinating projects and programs. Compensation was fair. Good opportunities to work in a global environment in a variety of roles and functions.

Cons

Shift from a "we" are in it together to an its all about "me" culture in the last 10+ years. Too many miss-hires at the senior and junior executive levels.Many individuals who were once motivated by passion or at a minimum by duty are now driven by fear. Weak management development and succession planning. Constant reorganizations.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do real succession planning. Recreate a culture where you develop and promote from within. Trust people to make good decisions and give them the ability to do it.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    HP overall is a good place with a lot of potential.

    Cons

    Group by group or division by division...goals are not clear...and management is not consistent. There are many Director and VP levels that should have never been promoted to those positions. Most are not innovative and risk aversive...protecting their salaries and titles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The Executive Council needs to flush out bad VP's and Directors.
