Proud to work for HP the technology company, frustrated by HP the corporate entity.

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

Pros

Breadth of product and services, and the potential for integration. Scale. Leading or competitive in each chosen market. Current executive team appears to have the correct business acumen and attitude to lead HP to a stronger position.

Cons

Paramount focus on cost, to the detriment of quality. Reckless elimination of first-world employees, with little to no warning. Delusional belief in the ability to create equivalent engineering capabilities in low-labor-cost areas. Consistent disingenuity or vapid propaganda in internal communications.

Personally, I find abhorrent most corporate positions on social and political issues.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management appears unwavering on all issues of significance. There is no point in providing feedback.
