    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    work life balance, the people

    Cons

    life at HP is always in one of only two possible scenarios
    1. preparing FOR
    2. adjusting TO
    yet another reorg. constant changes but going in circles, redoing what we already tried in the past just because a new face said we should, only to last long enough before the new person steps in...

    I had 6 managers in an 18th month period as a result of the reorgs.

    Advice to Management

    get your stuff straight, know your vision
