Approves of CEO

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

There are always opportunities to work on cutting-edge projects and develop new skills. Being such a big company you can obtain a rather broad set of experiences to help grow your career. The key is you will have to own your career and be opportunistic, nothing will be handed to you.

Cons

When you find yourself in a great part of HP it can be awesome. However, when you find yourself working in a failing business unit or under a bad manager(s), it can be really bad. Below the executive level, people don't move up or around too often so the onus is on you to get yourself out of a bad situation. The company moves very slowly except when it comes to workforce reductions. Only patient people should apply. Raises are hard to come by and you have to negotiate hard when you come into the company or take a promotion.

Advice to Management

Focus on competitive salaries. Too many talented people walk out the door with their only complaint being compensation.
