Flexible hours and low-stress environment, many interesting projects at the facility.

Work was of limited importance, useful tasks were sometimes hard to find.

HP has a great variety of projects and divisions, it is likely that anyone could find something of interest to them somewhere within the company.

New ideas and opportunities
2012 | VERIFIED INTERN


Uppers

The flexibility of hours to work with school. Also the importance of my doing well in school to my manager.


Downers

The lack of a mentor/team. While I do work on a team, they rarely have time to help and I was never given an actual mentor to go to for questions.


Advice to Potential Interns

Be prepared to keep yourself motivated towards your goals. It is quite different from a typical job most people have before working for HP. There is little structure to check your attendance, so it is up to you to want to better yourself by being on campus and pushing yourself.
