    Pros

    Excellent people, work life balance, flexibility and technology.

    Cons

    The management style is very much a boys club mentality.
    Career progression is difficult unless you spend your time managing upwards.
    Pay rises non existent unless you receive a competitive offer.
    Operate very silo-ed with little to no collaboration between the various business units.

    Advice to Management

    More focus required on long term healthy business rather than short term quick wins.

    Pros

    Continuous opportunities for promotion and education.

    Cons

    Constant mergers and company re-direction force thousands off the payroll.

    Advice to Management

    Need competent leadership. Too many thrust into positions of authority without being ready to drive success going forward.

    Pros

    Pay, Work life balance, company ethics

    Cons

    career development, no new projects, lethargic management

    Advice to Management

    software products are not being marketed properly or not being strategically priced, so even novice competitors are eating away on clients/projects.

    Pros

    Lots of training available and lots of opportunity to move around inside the company to try new things.

    Cons

    Bonuses, at least in HP Enterprise Services, are a joke. So are raises. They're both either non-existent or in the 2-3% range, regardless of how good the job performance is. If you happen to get a bonus it'll likely be in the form of stock options which won't mature for a year and not fully for 3 years.

    CEO has put out blanket direction for everyone to get back into the office in order to "improve collaboration". Doesn't matter if you live 50 miles away from the nearest office, doesn't matter if you live a hundred miles from the nearest office. The direction is to get back in the office or find a new job. Doesn't matter if there's no one from your work group or account in the office with you, just get in the office. Ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Allow people to fail. When they fail, and they will because they're human, come alongside them and help them up instead of taking steps to burn them and have them removed from the company.
