Great while it lasted

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Hewlett-Packard

ProsGreat name recognition - the company was a great starting point. There were a lot of people that had spent their entire working life there.

ConsSometimes it was too big - too many layers of management at times made it tedious to get some projects completed.

Advice to Senior ManagementSo far things are too big to change quickly without possibly 'breaking' a lot of longstanding ingrained policies and procedures.
