I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

It's big. It's full of opportuntiy for those seeking a dynamic place to work. There are so many things going inside. It's a huge organization, with many moving parts. For those with initiative, this is definetly the place to be.

Cons

It's big. It can be a bit difficult to navigate and effect change, at times.

Advice to Management

The new CEO rocks and the direction looks good.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    HP's size and scope mean many opportunities to work in extremely diverse areas, functionally and geographically. It also means you have an opportunity to own immense projects that you simply don't see elsewhere - you can make a large financial impact.

    Cons

    Too much organizational flux to allow consistency. It seems that re-orgs happen yearly and this has a real impact on people and processes. In some roles work-life balance can be impossible and in others there is too much 'make-work' - need to 'right-size'.

    Advice to Management

    Pick a strategy, stick with it. Consider divesting some areas that are not core as things may have become too unwieldy, too large, overly complex. Have to be faster in some of the emerging areas.
