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.
