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

    Pros

    An extensive and integrated teleworker program/capability
    Market scope provides opportunity for global work activities
    Good benefits in the form of insurance coverages and PTO
    The name still commands respect in certain markets and segments
    Tremendous opportunities for grow in SMB, medical, education, and mobile (cell)

    Cons

    Senior leadership has no vision for the workers other than cut cost and work harder
    Is a very HW focused and product oriented company; customer is there to purchase
    The workplace culture lacks synergy and teams are disconnected from each other
    Non-HP workers are treated differently than those with HP legacy backgrounds
    A very difficult place to make changes that really matter to customers
    Hard to do business with HP is a common cry from customers in all segments

    Advice to Management

    Truly listen to your customers and your workforce vs discounting what they tell you
    Choose 5 things to do exceptionally well vs trying to do everything poorly
    Bring your customer facing functions onshore in U.S. vs India, Latin America, etc.
    Turn your R&D function back on and let it roll vs trying to innovate on a schedule
    Preserve the skills and talents that you still have to preserve operational IP
