I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

I suppose there are career opportunities at HP if that sort of thing attracts you. Beyond that there's little reason talent would come here anymore. No upside, not part of a growth culture, more changes no doubt yet to come so not sure what horse you'll be riding. Some of the remaining people are great, but sure to leave.

Cons

Ch-ch-changes. It's not the changes per se, but the reality that this is no longer a high-growth, high energy software company. With some luck (mostly) it will become something in HP. More likely it continues to whither, and make no mistake about it that has been happening. It could have been a contender...

Advice to Management

It's a ship without a captain. No one has a clue what the direction is, and no one cares. People will jump ship with that plunging HP share price.

    Pros

    The company has an honest heart.

    Cons

    The heart is ageing and lacks the vigour to take on today's technology problems

    Advice to Management

    Move fast, push employees to meet deadlines, go to market fast!

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

    Pros

    It's a high brand employer, so good job opportunities outside.

    Cons

    Not much new development opportunity, more of maintenance releases.
