    Current Employee - Product Manager in Dallas, TX
    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Virtual office / home office is encouraged, work / life balance, decent benefits compared to other top tier companies (which does not say much about HP's peer set - because HP's benefits have gotten worse every year over the past few years).

    Cons

    As with anything, without a consistent management and leadership team, it's difficult to really understand the company I work for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a management team longer than one year.
