    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Years of engineering expertise to draw on.
    - Interesting projects.
    - Generally great people.
    - Great career starter.

    Cons

    - Interesting projects tend to be short lived.
    - Legacy projects overstay their welcome.
    - Upper management truffle-shuffle.
    - Layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Although it may be too late, I think the company should get back to its "basics". Granted, that used to mean "Test and Measurement" but now, this most likely means "solid cloud services" and "compelling hardware" that extend to both Enterprise and Consumer customers. In regard to hardware, concentrate on reducing the multiple SKUS further. Same goes for the consumer print business.
