Fortune

For Hewlett Packard, splitting up was a lot of hard work

Hewlett Packard's split will present challenges for both legacy companies, particularly related to company culture. As Sachin Shah, a partner in Bain & Company's London office explained, employees sometimes consider one company in a spin off to be less attractive than the other. In one company split Shah worked on, it was clear that one of the businesses was on a growth spurt while the other one was going to operate more "lean and mean," he said. All the IT talent wanted to work at the company that was expanding because it sounded more exciting.
