The People that I worked with. Job was very Interesting. Had organization wide impact.

Corporations sometimes have a stigma, especially against startups. Give the corporation a chance, they provide more opportunities to do cool stuff and have the infrastructure to give you benefits/etc. Excellent company to work for.

Sao Paulo | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The opportunity to learn in practice what you are studying at the university, and meet a lot of people.


Downers

I think the internship in HP, is being very important to me, and I can not complain about nothing, since the beginning I was very well received by my workmates, mainly by my manager, that helped me a lot, in all activities. The only thing that I can highlight in this question is: The HP it's a big company, there is a lot of areas, when I started work here, I felt a little bit lost, because HP have a lot of information. So I think that HP can improve this situation, but the rest are perfect.

My work here matters.
Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

Great environment, fun and not boring work, great pay, sharp people to work around, endless resources for continued development

lack of more structured training


Advice to Potential Interns

To be professional in all that you do at work. I think some interns feel that only some work needs to be done as professional as possible when it all should be done this way.


Advice to Management

The only thing I think could be improved would be a more structured form of training.

Internship Provides Education and Resources to Budding Business Leaders
Denver, CO | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

I was allowed to study abroad in Australia and work remotely for my U.S. manager from an HP office in Australia. It was amazing to meet other HP employees in a different group & country. I have tremendous flexibility in my working hours, whether I want to work from home or not, and my time off.


Downers

Sometimes it's pretty vague what I'm responsible for, which results in some miscommunication and a little extra work once in a while. The internship is almost like a job share in some functions which can be pretty annoying and a little counterproductive.


Advice to Potential Interns

Best business experience you could ever receive. The pay is excellent, and the management is VERY willing to work with you on any ideas you have. In the business departments, interns have very high exposure to top management.


Sample Interview Questions

What was your favorite subject in school?

What was a time you were under pressure and how did you handle that situation?

What would you like to do?


Advice to Management

There was a bit of a kerfuffle because one intern was getting paid four or five dollars an hour OVER what the other interns in the same department, on the same team were making. I would just say, pay everyone fairly. We all get paid really well, but it doesn't feel good to do a lot of great work and feel invested in the team to learn you are not as valuable as another intern of the exact same circumstances (Marketing, year in school, time at HP, etc). Not really about the money, just the principle of the thing.
