I worked at Hewlett-Packard

Pros

Great name recognition - the company was a great starting point. There were a lot of people that had spent their entire working life there.

Cons

Sometimes it was too big - too many layers of management at times made it tedious to get some projects completed.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

So far things are too big to change quickly without possibly 'breaking' a lot of longstanding ingrained policies and procedures.

No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Good conscientious individual performers who have built relationships and trust with clients -- that has brought business to EDS and now HP.

    Cons

    The Narcissic managers at the top are used to running a widgit company. Some of the decisions that are manadated down need to be in a Dilbert cartoon. US employees do not have a future with this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Running a clients IT shop is more than providing a body that can perform a technical function. The only relationships that last are built on trust.. There is no trust here.
