    Pros

    Good camaraderie between colleagues in own team
    Flexible work/life balance
    Great brand recognition, and lots of experience in the field
    Many experts to help get the job done
    Good manager watching my back and steering the right direction (but might not always be this way)

    Cons

    Benefits package fairly basic
    Salary under market rate and drastic cuts have been applied
    Delivery org hold all the power, sales are a small fish
    Red tape, Red tape, Red tape.
    Pass the buck culture - nobody wants to make a decision, take on responsibility or do the actual job.
    Culture of engineering things so that others to do your bidding
    In the telecoms software domain, other big players (IBM, Oracle) have vested huge $$ in R&D and acquisitions and are very aggressive in sales. HP feel more arrogant, thinking their solutions are superior and have been around longer. Relying too heavily on repeat business and customers 'wanting' HP.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take heed of smaller business units which can provide very high profit margins - not only flogging tin and ink.
    Take heed of the cuts made in recent times, and reverse them - they are driving away good staff.
    Figure out and fix whatever is causing good candidates to not want to work for HP anymore.
    Get the act together with Sales organization and give them the power to win more business.
    Don't only look to the biggest deals, smaller ones can add up over time - especially in developing countries.

    Pros

    Good company to work for. Great career growth opportunities. the Company has a good reputation in the market place which is good when you want to move out.

    Cons

    Salaries are not comparable with the industry. at times you almost feel insignificant, which is probably true at most large companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better compensation if you want to retain your employees. Once the market bounces back, the retention rate will inevitably drop.
