    I worked at Hewlett-Packard (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People, customers and co-workers are among the best. Outstanding product line that is a necessity in today's business and personal world. A lot of talented folks with a "can do" attitude.

    Cons

    Management seems to be on a revolving "soup du jur" mentality. We get reorganized and we goo this direction for awhile, then when that doesn't pan out, we reorg again and go a different direction with another management team. There is no real vision...just get through the quarter and readjust focus later.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a winning plan and stick with it. You are being paid to lead, not just to sit back and play musical chairs with your management teams.
