    Pros

    HPE has talented professionals who want the best for their customers and partners. There are many interesting jobs across a wide swath of the IT marketplace

    Cons

    As the company continues to shed its value-add services and software business, and has already seperated from the printer cash-cow business, it must find a profitable business model focused on hardware. This requires constant downsizing and re-examination of cost structures. Very hard to know whether today's seemingly secure job will exist next week.

    Advice to Management

    Find a good buyer for the company that will captialize on the strong market position in converged infrastrucdture and will want to retain the best employees. Do it soon before the customer base erodes
