Pros

It's a job and a paycheck. Healthcare covered. 401(k)

Cons

Employees really don't have much value to the company - everyone is replaceable.

Advice to Management

More value should be placed on the individual and not on pleasing Wall Street.

    Pros

    Large company, with some opportunity to move around within the company.

    Cons

    Too large of a company, too bureaucratic, too much layer, too political.

    Advice to Management

    Hire middle management in engineering who actually know a thing or two about building technology

    The company culture rewarded incompetent managers who engaged in politics at the expense of what was best for HP.

    Pros

    The competitors love Hewlett Packard.

    Cons

    HP has squeezed margins so tight that Wall Street fell in love. Still the HP board and managers successfully dissolved plenty shareholder value through overpriced acquisitions and impotent management policies.

    Advice to Management

    Read "The HP Way" by Dave Packard.
