    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Still plenty of job roles for a company of this scales and size. Still helping plenty of customers globally, but not any more special from most average firms.

    Cons

    Mix of people had changed drastically in favor of a very diverse mix from outside. As a result, there is no real culture and values, especially compared to the earlier days before Carly Fiorina came in and started the ball of change rolling. In other words, it lacks the fabric that rally its people to contribute their best even in adverse conditions. Over time it had become a who you know, hire-and-fire, type of firm.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back visionary and prominent ex-HPites, and involved the people who are close to the founders to rebuild the important social fabric for a great company. Great companies are not built by CEOs and their management team who is only interested in meeting stakeholder expectation, month-to-month and quarter-to-quarter.
