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

    Pros

    - Flexible projects, Great colleagues
    - Solid technical people
    - Lot of flexibility in workplace, once you've experience
    - Decent pay & benefits...not too much below market.

    Cons

    - Management chains - too much bureaucracy. So much so that corporate started a program to bust bureaucracy.
    - No growth, unless you are in high profit project.
    - Frequent shuffles in strategy from corporate. No clue what they're up to.

    Advice to Management

    - Get rid of redundant management layers
    - If you don't have a business plan for acquired company, Pl. don't buy it... (I'm ex-EDS, so I know).
