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

Pros

Unmatched portfolio of products and services. Clients and partners turn your calls. Good benefits. Ability to move into new positions and move internationally.

Cons

Annual downsizing exercises. Poor vision, and inability to execute. Very bureaucratic and lacks agility. Internal groups forget that the customer is the reason for their job. Success often comes in spite of the company, not because of it.

Advice to Management

Spin off the Print division, make the strong and significant investments into mobile (tablets and phones) and manage the secular decline of notebooks and PCs.
