It's your reality that's bad, it's the unreality - that's my take on Mark Hurd's leadership anyway.

Pros

- People in general are pretty easy going and knowledgeable, especially the few old-time employees that still remain - Flexible work hours, great if you have a big side-hobby or outside of work project. I was able to get some finance certification on a side fairly easily while working.

Cons

- Prior to great recession there was a higher willingness to help between people, lower morale now. The company is promising to improve reward and recognition but nothing tangible yet. - Do not expect any raises/job security - No immediate benefits for learning and becoming an expert in an area, maybe job security but don't count on it. - Paraphrasing the words of Dilbert's creator and the title of this review - Hurd's leadership consists of convincing employees that they are selfish for anything they get and it's totally ok for him to get 40 million bonuses. I have stopped listening to anything he says about 2 years ago. - Benchmarking has made HP an average company it many respects - Large employee turnover

Advice to Management

Management has been cutting costs in the organization ruthlessly in order to free up capital for acquisitons of outside companies. Turn around and take a look at what you've done to the core.
