    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Big company with brand recognition
    Used to be known for product quality

    Cons

    Anyone with talent has left the company in last year
    New managers have no degrees, no management experience
    All processes internally are really bad - takes CEO to approve a hire
    Don't bother, they don't want people that think, have an education or are passionate. If you want to be drone, give it a try.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the bureaucracy honestly - don't just give it lip service.
    Listen to your customers - stop ignoring the problems, make people accountable.
    Hire and retain the best - stop promoting those that just outlasted the rest. Look for people with proven results, and eduction.
