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

    Pros

    Some fantastic, smart and dedicated people at middle management and below. Great company history and some very strong infrastructure is still in place.

    Cons

    Several years with poor leadership from CEO and first level below have left the company with no real strategy. The result is that people work very hard but produce little results. Also, lack of leadership has enabled psychopathic & charming but destrucive leaders to emerge at upper/mid levels, creating an often toxic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out the destructive behaviors from level 2and 3 managment. Develop a real strategy to become a leader in one or two areas and stick with it (stop shotgunning and vacillating around product categories that you missed out on 3-5 years ago).
