Pros

Lots of bright people who want to do a good job.

Cons

The centralization of internal services has moved HP into the Dilbert realm.

Advice to Management

Balance centralization with speed/agility. Not investing enough in R&D. HP is fast becoming 'also-ran' in technology. Hurd came in and made some necessary structural changes, but now it's time for him to go. HP needs a visionary not a bean counter.

    Pros

    Talented engineers. By and large the people at HP are pretty great. These folks have the capacity to do great things.

    Cons

    Carly, Hurd. Hurd only seems tolerable because Carly was such a disaster. HP used to feature world-class R&D. Sadly this legacy is in gradual decay.

    Advice to Management

    Read the "HP Way". Learn to respect R&D. There are great people there. Let them do their jobs and thrive.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Smart co-workers, flexible work schedule, telecommuting

    Cons

    Benefits have been slashed and pay cut. All upper management focuses on is short term profit. Can't get the support you need because of cost reductions. Morale is extremely low.

    Advice to Management

    Start focusing on the future of the company. Employees are fed up and getting ready to leave. Systems don't work and results in bad data and wasted effort.
