I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great people to work with in the company. Great benefits.

Cons

Lots of politics. No room for innovation. Not open minded. Forces you to use Microsoft and HP technology

Advice to Management

Reduced the politics. Cut loose some of the long time senior management there and bring fresh blood.
