    Pros

    My first reason to work for Hewlett Packard was that I had access to some great technologies. Theres so much room for growth because HP has a very wide range of products that I can help deliver. HP also tries hard to make sure I get the appropriate training as well as the appropriate support while I am out on a customer site. I am extremely happy with my peers, atleast within the group I would for I get to be around some top notch engineers who are passionate about what they work on. I don't think there is any where else I'd rather be working at this time.

    Cons

    I think that some more formal in class room training would benefit myself and my team members. So far we're required to learn most of what we do, hands on while we're out working on projects.

    Advice to Management

    Senior Management is great so far. My managers have changed quite often. I guess thats part of working for an organization that is as large as it is.
