No opinion of CEO

I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Quality benefits and a well managed 401k portfolio by Fidelity.

Cons

Company is more than 300,000 employees now, bigger than a lot of cities. It is too big, too bureaucratic, takes too long to get anything done, has too many layers. Employee reviews are useless.

Advice to Management

Stop advancing "Process Managers" instead of People Managers.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Huge, lots of different experiences, some really fab people. significant career diversity in different business units and locations when the timing is right.

    Cons

    huge, slow and shrinking. missed key disruptions in technology - mobile, tablet, virtualisation, enterprise SSD, SDN, on and on....

    Advice to Management

    Very quick to hire from the outside instead of promoting from within, not taking the hard choices on culling slow and shrinking businesses and getting serious about growth and margin expansion. Are you IBM or DELL? can't be both.
