    Pros

    Coleagues and first 2 levels of management are are very supportive

    Cons

    It is no longer HP .... it is HP/Compaq/EDS/tandem/etc. The HP culture is lost.

    Pros

    A great sense of 'being in the same boat' no matter what role a person was fulfilling. Colleagues were generally very supportive and tried to help out a 'newbie' even though most of them seemed to under endless pressures in their own roles.

    Cons

    Job role (a new position) not clearly defined and became a 'dumping ground' for tasks from others who had neither the time, or inclination to take on. Far to much pressure on staff at all levels which resulted in teams being endlessly tired as the days rolled by.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1. Listen to your people. 2. Learn from what they are telling you. 3. Implement the suggestions your employees suggest, and 4. Listen to your people!
