I have been working at Hewlett-Packard full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Large company with lots of opportunities for exploring different businesses and functions. Great people. Collaborative. Flexibility to manage my schedule - to work where and when works best for me.

Cons

Too many years of sacrificing the future for the current quarter. Rewards have become too concentrated at the top of the company. Really bad decision making at the executive and board level for way too many years. Workload is ridiculous at times. Little to no time or dollars for training.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop trying to grow through acquisitions (especially gigantic, stupid acquisitions!). Focus internally on innovation and invention. Create a more balanced bonus system (profit sharing rather than the ridiculous 'pay for performance') to give all levels of the company incentives, rather than just executives.

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Great potential variety, you can really map a career out if you get chance

    Cons

    Became too political, decisions being made because of vested interests rather than interests of the business. Far too much favoritism.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold people accountable and reward based on performance not perception
