Some of the work was extremely easy and brainless, but when I asked for a more complex project it seemed overwhelming

I was provided many opportunities to learn new technologies and learn professional skills.

Downers

People are degrading. While not all permanent employees display such crude nature, you are openly told that you are not important enough, ignored, and encouraged not to ask questions.

Advice to Potential Interns

Permanent employees think they are better than you from the get go.

Sample Interview Questions

What sort of projects have you worked on in the past?

Advice to Management

Stop hiring ****, degrading people.

Would You Recommend

Yes

HP is a great company to intern for and they do their best to help you succeed.

It can be difficult to find others who know about what you are working on.

Advice to Potential Interns

Communicate with your manager your desires instantly after being hired. If you want to work through the school year: tell them. If you want to work after your graduate: MAKE SURE THEY KNOW.

I'm learning more than I thought I would, and this is only the beginning

Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Working directly on a real software project with experienced engineers. Intern and employee events. Flexible hours. Good pay. Was able to take time off when needed. A positive culture and very friendly people.

Downers

I was not assigned a specific mentor, although most HP interns are. Some disorganization within my team about what I should be doing and who should be helping me.

Advice to Potential Interns

I would recommend this company to anyone. I enjoyed my time here and it seems like a great place to begin a career in technology.

Sample Interview Questions

Have you ever worked on a team project and what was your experience (if positive, why was it positive? If negative, why and what did you do about it?)?
