    A great company with dedicated employees, somewhat hampered by top-heavy management.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time

    Pros

    Meg Whitman has brought some stability and made sensible moves to bring the company around after the last few disastrous CEOs.
    It is possible to follow a technical career path that is valued and respected within HP, which in my experience is comparatively rare.
    There are plenty of real experts in this company who have been around a long time.
    There are plenty of world-class learning / training opportunities.

    Cons

    HP is still reeling from the effects of a run of bad CEOs, notably the Hurd era where rampant short-termism ran amok to please those "investors" of the parasitic, asset-stripping mentality.
    There's quite a bit of dead wood, especially in middle management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to hang onto your good folks.
    A bit more investment up front - especially in staff whilst trying to build up businesses - saves a lot of firefighting and embarrassment later (tbh I've not worked for *any* company that really appreciated this, even with the wealth of HP).

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
