I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Offers a wide variety of challenging work with good historial commercial success. Broad set of skills needed and interaction with a lot of very good people. Exposure to many facets of engineering.

Cons

HP has gotten big, and decisions seem to take a long time. Priorities have been changing often. That has led to instability in the programs. Also seems like everything is urgent so it's hard to keep to a good, solid plan.

Advice to Management

The people of hp are your greatest asset. Keeping up the morale and innovation should be your #1 goal. Also, there seems to be a lot of chasing new ideas which has taken management attention away from doing the fundamental job well. Get back to the basics of good, solid engineering work.

    Everything else. Old EDS bad business practices

    Get rid of the old EDS ways. Get new management for HP Enterprise Services accounts so that division stops losing money for HP.
