Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Some interesting work and nice, intelligent, hard working people

Cons

Used to be known as family friendly, but is no longer. Used to care about research, but now prioritizes short term profits and acquisitions. Has gone multinational and has no loyalty to the U.S. Directs profits toward shareholders who are already rich and can't figure out any more useful capital projects. Has stagnated.

Advice to Management

Bring back research and long term thinking.
