    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Leadership is more in touch with reality. They recognize that innovation and R&D are ciritical to success.

    Cons

    Still a big company with alot of beauracracy and misdirected middle management. It is easy to get disillusioned if you are caught up in that scene.

    Advice to Management

    Being linked to business is a good thing in terms of innovation, BUT do not short change the company by not looking for new blue ocean strategies. HP Labs can't do it all - you need visionaries as well.


  2. "HP has changed. Still a good place to work."

    Pros

    They are bringing in fresh blood and attempting to stay competitive. Good work-family balance.

    Cons

    Pension and retirement plans are going away. It can to be very political. Many people are interested in keeping their jobs rather than pushing the company to be competitive.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in seasoned workers from smaller companies to bring the company back to life.
