Pros

Smart and talented people, good culture, opportunities to experience every type of legal issue under the sun

Cons

Increasingly, departments and even specific jobs within Legal are becoming more like silos (despite the talk of moving towards more open communication and flexible job responsibilities). Surely the bad economy and poor company performance are partly to blame, but employees are being asked to do more for less in the face of tight budgets.

Advice to Management

Give employees more input on their goals and performance metrics.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Free Lunch on Fridays
    Meg Whitman is the new CEO

    Cons

    HP has acquired Autonomy and no matter what the 5 leaders at the top say, kick, yell or scream , they are not in control ANY more. There's plenty of smoke and mirrors to make you think that the previous CEO is still calling the shots, and he may be to the people around him, but I will tell you he is not calling the ones that matter.
    This causes many people to run around do work that doesn't matter and it is frustrating.

    Advice to Management

    Ask yourself 1 simple question. Am I proud of being part of HP?
    Yes - then grow up and act it
    NO - show some class and just leave
