    Pros

    Lots of talent, opportunity to learn a lot, exposed to several top executives

    Cons

    Very few opportunities to have an international career starting in the South of Brazil. Few real opportunities and strong pressure to keep salaries low due to international labor rates.

    Pros

    I work with cutting edge technology and am able to get my hands dirty with coding the operating systems of very expensive switches. Our main competitor is Cisco and every day is a race to be better than them. My manager doesn't pressure me to deliver. I dictate my own pace of work. I get to work with complex software and I have a big role in writing code that will be in millions of advanced switches.

    Cons

    HP has gone through several high-level management teams in the last few years. We are still feeling the adverse effects of the Mark Hurd era and the short-lived span of Leo Apotheker's 'leadership'. We are constantly in a state of flux and our future seems rather uncertain.

    Advice to Management

    You're on the right track. Stay the course.
