    Doesn't Recommend
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Good camaraderie between colleagues in own team
    Flexible work/life balance
    Great brand recognition, and lots of experience in the field
    Many experts to help get the job done
    Good manager watching my back and steering the right direction (but might not always be this way)

    Cons

    Benefits package fairly basic
    Salary under market rate and drastic cuts have been applied
    Delivery org hold all the power, sales are a small fish
    Red tape, Red tape, Red tape.
    Pass the buck culture - nobody wants to make a decision, take on responsibility or do the actual job.
    Culture of engineering things so that others to do your bidding
    In the telecoms software domain, other big players (IBM, Oracle) have vested huge $$ in R&D and acquisitions and are very aggressive in sales. HP feel more arrogant, thinking their solutions are superior and have been around longer. Relying too heavily on repeat business and customers 'wanting' HP.

    Advice to Management

    Take heed of smaller business units which can provide very high profit margins - not only flogging tin and ink.
    Take heed of the cuts made in recent times, and reverse them - they are driving away good staff.
    Figure out and fix whatever is causing good candidates to not want to work for HP anymore.
    Get the act together with Sales organization and give them the power to win more business.
    Don't only look to the biggest deals, smaller ones can add up over time - especially in developing countries.

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent benefits, provides professional employees with a lot of autonomy and responsibility.

    Cons

    You are one of over 220,000 employees world-wide. The personal touch with your upper leadership is no longer possible. Leadership used to put the extra efforts to support top performing employees, not they are a bit gun shy to tip the cart by supporting long-time top performers.

    Advice to Management

    There are many opportunities within the company left unfilled, people managers need to do a better job of protecting their good employees. Sr. leadership needs to allow organizations to move people from one org to another without using WFAs. Give the employee the option of knowing the opportunitity is a short-term option and the emplyee needs to continue to fine a more permenent offer within.
