Doing important work while meeting important people


Uppers

I felt like my projects were making a difference at HP. They were really flexible with me and made sure they were giving me all that I needed. There were a lot of on campus activities and chances for me to meet other interns and make friends.


Downers

I wanted to start earlier in the summer, but there seemed to have been an HR backup, so I started two weeks later than my presumed start time.


Advice to Potential Interns

Take advantage of the time you have here. Most everyone is willing to talk to you to help you figure out what you want to do, so make sure to set up meetings with employees to just learn about hwta they do and how they got to that place.


Advice to Management

I really liked working here this summer. I can't think of anything off the top of my head.

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.

Fun & Educational. I learned a lot!


Uppers

Having managers, who have been in this field for years, teaching you. Having an "on boarding" buddy assist you with your tranistion and your go to person if you have any questions about the company.


Downers

Have to remind some individuals that you are an intern and you're still learning.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to take notes and listed. Very knowledgable people. A lot to learn.


Advice to Management

Keep an eye on the amount of time interns spend working on different projects. Some have very little and others have a lot where they are unable to participate in the intern activities.

Amazing opportunity to work alongside brilliant people in a corporate setting


Uppers

High expectations promote a great work environment, and opportunities to grow within the company are endless.


Downers

I do not have any - I can honestly say this was the best experience.


Advice to Potential Interns

Don't be afraid to ask questions, be the ideal employee and they will be the ideal employer. Organization is key, because you are in a professional environment and they don't see you as "just an intern", you are treated like an employee and expected to act as such.

Best Summer Internship


Uppers

Treated like an employee through respect of co-workers and in the type of projects/responsibilities given to me

There were a few times where I ran out of work, but these were few and far between

Most flexible internship


Uppers

Overall flexibility. My manager encouraged us to attend all of the networking events, feedback from my manager throughout the summer on my projects. The ability to meet different technical managers who have different sorts of projects, there was always a baby project I could take on.


Downers

I was in a lab setting (which needed special access to get into). It was okay, but hard to talk to any of the other interns. I felt as though I were in a bubble.


Advice to Potential Interns

Hp offers flexibility and cares about you growing as both professionally and individually. There are different types of programs within Hp that offer growth and potential.

At HP you are in charge of your own career


Uppers

I had full access to everything a normal employee had. I was given real work with real people to help me. Everyone was nice and helpful and no one looked down on me because I didn't know or was an intern.


Downers

I was left alone to do and discover things on my own. This wasnt bad but it made it hard at times to get places with certain projects. HP has very self-sufficent employees. This is true as an intern as well.


Advice to Potential Interns

HP is a great place to work and learn and gain experience. They treat their employees well. As an intern it is best to work hard to talk to people and ask questions. People talk to interns and show them what they do just because you are an intern. An internship at HP is like a short term employment with all the perks and moreso including intern events and programs.

Find your fit. HP has a unique culture, and it is most important to find where you feel comfortable.
