    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Company is investing and adapting its strategy and aligning the organization to the trends in IT. When HP gets it all pointing in the same direction look out!

    Cons

    With changing strategies comes churn and burn. Lets hope it does not perpetuate cronyism and complacency.

    Advice to Management

    Shifting back to the office is a good cultural strategy but it is also alienates talent. Invest in more robust tools to support remote workers. Trends show companies are moving more and more to a balanced remote worker model and HP should be ahead as the leading IT company.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, management is wonderful and the vacation time is wonderful.

    Cons

    Too many cooks a lot of the time, by that I mean that there are too many people in charge but no one makes a decision.

    Advice to Management

    Let the employees have more of a say on the day to day workings of the project they are working on . There doesn't need to be 15 managers to work things through.
