Pros

Good opportunities for career growth. In my experience, managers allow and encourage job changes into new areas. There is a Technical Career Path that provides a path for technical people to move up without having to move into management. Lately they've been encouraging mentoring and different ways to share information across divisions.

Cons

HP is a huge company and is full of annoying bureaucracies. If bureaucracy drives you nuts then don't work for a huge company. If the work you do and the people you work with are more important then HP is a fine place to work and there are lots of opportunities in a large company.

    Pros

    Large and diverse. International experience. Great place to learn once.

    Cons

    So large and diverse, that change in strategy and direction can minimize your efforts. You have to constantly keep in touch and read the tea leaves.
