    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 Lacks significant partnerships, company's internal automation tools are outdated and expensive.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.

    Pros

    Exciting history. Large global reach makes for interesting projects, clients, and product offerings. Great access to software for completing your responsibilities.

    Cons

    Took multiple pay cuts. Pay is below average for the 24 hour access the company wants to you. Leadership is only interested in the leaders above them. No reward for stellar work. Tremendous amounts of internal process waste. Many opportunities for simplifying processes and reducing headcount.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify internal processes. Find away to get back to the R&D roots but apply those values to all company activities, not just new products.

    Keep going! Try to find solution to poor communication though

    Pros

    Decent compensation, good work-life balance. All the perks of working in a huge organization.

    Cons

    Thread of constant lay-offs. One the one hand, HP is posting job ads and hiring people, and on the other, is laying off people left, right and center! No job security at this company, at least in the current times.


  9. A good place to work for a while. Plan on moving after a few years.

    Pros

    Benefits are adequate. Medical and 401K are probably are typical for large companies. The support system is pretty good and there are many opportunities to give back to the community. Lots of opportunities to learn and improve your skills. Lots of people like me work from home so the work-life balance is good.

    Cons

    Pay increases are very minimal. Expect to move on in a few years to keep your salary in the competitive range. Also, as with most places, your experience may be different depending on your manager.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people. It is much easier to keep good people than find them.
