    Pros

    Large company can provide multiple opportunities. Much of the old IT management left with Randy Mott, thus improving moral and being replaced with better management.

    Cons

    Ravaged by grueling cost cutting by previous CEOs (and CIO) which focused only on wall street bottom line and their bonus, the company struggles to repair the damage as short term actions catch up with them. This has limited the options that the new CEO has, eroded their ability to change course and most importantly severely impacted moral.

    There are pockets of workers who aren't overworked and see opportunities. If you decide to join this company, be prepared for war, change, and a continuous struggle to stay relevant as a company.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Possible to telecommute depending on job type
    Has all of the infrastructure and tools that come with a large company

    Cons

    Pigeon hole people making it difficult to move to a different area
    Matrixed meaning that people management is separate from management of the work -- so often the person handling your salary doesn't understand what you actually do for a liviing

    Advice to Management

    Stop the RIF insanity
