Pros

Better than standing in an unemployment line or soup kitchen. Humor distributed daily by Mark Hurd, every time he says "Pay for Performance" everyone breaks out in gut cramping laughter.

Cons

HP has no vision, it's a conglomeration of tech acquisitions designed to make Mark Hurd appear to be a "Mover and a Shaker", apparently he plans to run for Senator of California some day. HP's exec mgmt is extremely short sighted, there is no investment in R&D, it's all about selling non-existent functionality, having the customer fund a mad rush to deliver and move on to the next mess for less. The massive pay cuts forced on EDS' best and brightest are manifesting themselves in horribly negative ways that will soon become apparent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Investors, dump the BoD, dump Hurd, gain someone with vision who can think beyond being a carbon copy of Carly Fiorina or Chainsaw Al Dunlap. HP's future value is being eroded underneath your noses, but you'll be long gone when the corporate body bloats and begins to stink.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    You have brand recognition of a worldwide company and that can get you in the door on certain sales opportunities.

    Cons

    You are not always treated fairly and there isn't a lot of recognition. In a company this big, you are a number and not always treated the best in my opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know how to do the job of the people you are leading/managing. If you can do the job, you're more likely to be supportive and understanding of frustrations and day to day operations.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Promise of no freeze
    Work from home
    Good health coverage

    Cons

    Ruthless CEOs
    Bad training system
    Very unproportionally distributed salaries

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Got to listen to the employees more seriously when they are shouting to be heard. Last years decision made you lost valuable people, hence loose quality in delivery, and customers don't forget easily.
