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

Pros

I'm really encouraged by Meg Whitman's vision and leadership. She's made many solid, significant changes to the strategy and culture that were long overdue. Overall, she comes across as candid, focused, and intelligent whether talking to employees, customers, or wall street.
HP is large and covers a wide range of technology offerings, there are lots of opportunities to move around and meet your career goals

Cons

The positive changes up top can take a long time to trickle down and just because I'm not a Meg fan, doesn't mean I'm seeing the same positive changes and leadership within individual business units.
-in manufacturing "factory" they only get lip service as far as opportunities to move around and meet your career goals

Advice to Management

The factory/operation managers need to be honest with there team, if you know what I mean.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Work with talented engineers and employees who are passionate.

    Cons

    Even good engineers not in the good ol' boy's club get put into the wrong side of the bell curve. Bad management continues to plague this company.

    Advice to Management

    Replace the "forced distribution system" or whatever you call it now. It's still FDS.
