I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Technical proficiency of fellow employees; although HP has lost a LOT of ground on that over the last few years. Opportunities appear to be available but see follow-up note under cons.

Cons

Management is out of touch. Middle management is powerless. Pay for performance is a joke. Although opportunities appear to be available, management is adverse to placing you if you are already on an existing/billed assignment; i.e., need to be careful NOT to get yourself on a long-term assignment that you don't like.

Advice to Management

Empower middle management. Get "in touch" with the employee base.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great company with great brand recognition. Good life work balance. Nice products.

    Cons

    Too big for its own good. 320 people. Not "Best in Class" with any product line except maybe printers, but they are made by Canon.

    All the good talent is leaving. Hiring too many inexperienced people. Spends billions (not millions) on new companies just to seem the fail. Wastes lots of money.

    Senior VP use private planes for personal use. There is not that much PC business in Hawaii. Seriously? It is a demotivating for the team.

    Advice to Management

    Watch management expenditures and personal use of company jets.
