    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    They still have some of the core business that they acquired through EDS.

    Cons

    hp had no business experience with EDS, yet they bought us anyway. You cannot manage a services company the same was as manufacturing.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the $2B budget to maintain your private jet fleet and learn how to run a services company before you decide to trash the rest of them.

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

    Pros

    Good technical people that care about their work and customers

    Cons

    Upper management that cares only about hitting financial targets and need to care about their customers.

    Advice to Management

    Deep cost cutting via headcount cuts are rarely effective in the long run. Try delivering great customer service.
