    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Recognizeable brand, compensation/benefits are competitive for remaining employees.

    Cons

    EDS was not perfect, but as HP Enterprise Services there does not seem to be a chance for growth under a parent company with such a poor record managing acquisitions.

    Advice to Management

    Spin off Enterprise Services and concentrate on printer cartridges. HP stock price at this time of review is half the price EDS stock was at time of acqusition. How on earth did you manage that?

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large company with lots of opportunities for exploring different businesses and functions. Great people. Collaborative. Flexibility to manage my schedule - to work where and when works best for me.

    Cons

    Too many years of sacrificing the future for the current quarter. Rewards have become too concentrated at the top of the company. Really bad decision making at the executive and board level for way too many years. Workload is ridiculous at times. Little to no time or dollars for training.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to grow through acquisitions (especially gigantic, stupid acquisitions!). Focus internally on innovation and invention. Create a more balanced bonus system (profit sharing rather than the ridiculous 'pay for performance') to give all levels of the company incentives, rather than just executives.
