Real world experience, with competitive benefits and excellent career mentorship


Uppers

Great networking opportunities, Very competitive pay/benefits, Relevant experience in my field, Opportunity to earn full time employement


Downers

The process of accepting a job offer can be quite prolonged from offer to actual start date.


Advice to Potential Interns

HP offers a great opportunity to grow and develop within your field. As an intern you are given guidance, and managers/mentors understand that you are not quite yet at the level of someone who has been working for years in your field. At the same time, you are given projects and responsbilities similar to any other employee allowing you to gain the necessary experience yourself, but with less pressure and more individual support.


Advice to Management

Streamline the employee onboarding process, in terms of the process from accepting a job offer to being ready to start. Make sure the welcome packet with information for interns is available right off the bat upon starting employement. I got mine about a week after

Only second to Study Abroad in terms of challenge and personal/professional growth.


Uppers

I loved interacting with my coworkers and the other interns. The HP Intern Program and my manager provided so many opportunities to improve my networking skills and grow as an individual. I worked on a real project that will make a difference in the next generation of servers at HP, so that also contributed to my enjoyment of the work I was doing.


Downers

Working an 8 hour day in a cubicle/corporate America took some adjusting, but I think it's better to get used to that now than to be thrown into it, full-time, when I graduate.


Advice to Potential Interns

Take notes on what your manager says you will be working on during the interview and do some research before you start, especially if you're not familiar with the field/technology. Also, HP has a great Intern Program, but most of the events are optional, so you have to step out of your comfort zone and GO to make the most of the experience.

HP enriches the lives of students through Internship Program


Uppers

I love the challenege my job brings. With each challenge, I have strengthened my skills and gained the confidence I need to be successful in a professional setting. I have also enjoyed collaborating with my team members. Working with the marketing team has been a rewarding experience.


Downers

I truly have no complaints!


Advice to Potential Interns

During my interview, I was asked what I thought of when I heard the term HP. When I think of HP I think of the word opportunity. On my campus, the career services office spotlights students who want to share their experience as a new employee, or to share their experience as an intern. In both of these instances, there is always an employee from HP. And each time, they have nothing but wonderful things to say. HP gives students (and recent graduates) the kind of opportunity many other companies do not offer.


Advice to Management

I don't have any advice for management.

Working in HP Networking's Marketing division provided great exposure to business functions, technology product details & global image.


Uppers

The flexibility of the location, the convenience of employee perks (the gym, corporate events, etc) and the people in our department were the main highlights.


Downers

I though the intern fair and intern farewell event were poorly timed and interfered with the work that I needed to accomplish and there was a large disconnect between the itnern coordinators and the interns themselves. There should have been more events where everyone got together.


Advice to Potential Interns

Working for HP provides ample opportunity to interact with the executives of one of the larges companies in the world. The benefits and recognition opportunities are generous and people are generally fun to work with. I suggest working in the Palo Alto, CA office if possible because of the convenient location to the mecca of silicon valley.


Advice to Management

Hewlett-Packards human resources needs to provide interns with a complete packet of information that includes expected hours, compensation, contact information, start date instructions, a relevant building map, parking instructions, a calendar of required events and trainings as well as an explanation of benefits and what is required for compensation to be fulfilled. This is not the intern coordinators' jobs, human resources needs to absorb this responsibility since they are the ones who can address related questions.
