    Former Employee - Software Development Manager in Alpharetta, GA (US)

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    A large organization with many resources, functions, events, if you can find the right contact. Been part of a group working on a cool technology that kept interest going.

    Cons

    A large organization with a good layer of bureaucracy, unhealthy doze of politics at top level. In and out of hiring freezes took a great hit on team and morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop doing erratic decisions, and smooth out your hiring / layoff cycles. Too many layers of management. Better segment your business as there are many unrelated parts that share infrastructure that is designed only for the fattest cow. Need to become much more nimble.

    I worked at Hewlett-Packard full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most people are very nice to work with
    1st line managers try to shield you from the politics

    Cons

    HP is struggling and everyone is fed up with the revolving door at the top

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find out what market you want to dominate and go after it with a singular focus
