Pros

Quality benefits and a well managed 401k portfolio by Fidelity.

Cons

Company is more than 300,000 employees now, bigger than a lot of cities. It is too big, too bureaucratic, takes too long to get anything done, has too many layers. Employee reviews are useless.

Advice to Management

Stop advancing "Process Managers" instead of People Managers.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Not to many. Benefits and Salary is the only savior grace

    Cons

    Bad Work Culture, Performance evaluation is totally out of scope (was never set as fiscal year goal), No one takes responsibilities of their work specially the higher management

    Advice to Management

    Need to work on how to retain their employees. Make sure to align goals and performance accurately.

    Pros

    Overall a good company with longer term potential to grow. Better work place for experienced IT workers.

    Cons

    Company lacks strategic direction in all parts of the business, especially in IT services. Lacks significant partnerships, company's internal automation tools are outdated and expensive.

    Company spends too much wasted effort on hardware investment.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive in industry related acquisitions with a software focus.

    Acquisitions have been to much of big bang approach, not very well thought out by C-suite for BOD.
