Pros

Good company to work for, good technology. The acquiisition of EDS made a lot of sense for HP and probably stabilised the EDS balance sheet. Strong brand, strong global footprint.

Cons

Large company, easy to get lost, overlooked. Arbitrary redundancy approach, no consideration of skills or experience. Pay freezes and reductions, poor bonus structures unless you are in the elite "sales" pool, regardless of how much you contributed to the deal.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be reasonable in rewards between execs and employees.

    Pros

    Lots of white space and opportunity to grow for individuals taking the lead in their own professional and personal development.

    Cons

    For the last 10 years employees have been subsidizing the shopping spree that propelled HP to the #1 IT Vendor - its high time to see the dividends being paid out to those who invested in sweat and blood equity to make that work every day and not just those who provided funding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change must be managed not just created
