I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Broad technology portfolio with access to incredible talent and raw material. Great opportunities to lead the move to the next generation of cloud computing with a focus on security, big data and mobility.

Cons

Poor support of acquired and emerging BUs. HP has not built a platform for integrating acquired companies in the software area. All of the systems and processes are still optimized for hardware.

Advice to Management

Create a greater sense of urgency. Leverage the executive talent from acquired companies.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Hewlett Packard is a great company with exposure to many different opportunities and technologies. One of the best things about Hewlett Packard is the people that work for it. The people tend to help each other out on projects a lot and know the meaning of teamwork.

    Cons

    As with many large companies, sometimes it takes longer than necessary to get even simple things done. Lots of process and meetings at different levels often slow some things down some.

    Advice to Management

    Have less meetings and process and let people get things done in a more expedient way.
