    I worked at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    Good for hardware and infrastructure sales and services.

    Cons

    Poor employee support, and poor management of application and software services.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a lack of application / software experience in upper managment. The take over of EDS could be much more profitable and positive if managment included experienced application people. Decisions are based too much on polics and percieved sales impact rather than rational analysis.

    Pros

    Lots of new projects. Lots of information sharing and information. Good name to have on resume.

    Cons

    Dwindling opportunities for advancement, especially in the peripheral, parochial sites. "It's not what you know, or how well you did, it's who ya know."

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I don't think they care. Their nest is well feathered.
