    I have been working at Hewlett-Packard

    Pros

    I like the flexible hours, and multiple areas for possible career advancement. Additionally, there's strength in numbers: I know that entire software divisions will not be cut from the company, and that positions will be gradually phased out (rather than losing funding -> drastic cuts).

    Cons

    The typical downsides of a large company: Your management knows what you need/want but is powerless to get it, there is a large amount of paperwork for innovation, and pay is moderate.
