Flexibility, Teamwork, Intern Events

Work may sometimes seem monotonous - more variety would be preferred

If you're looking for an engineering employer that is flexible and has a good work atmosphere (helpful coworkers) but high pay is not your priority then HP is a perfect fit for you.

Lansing, MI | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The best part of my internship is that I got to and get to create custom software to help everyone and increase productivity, I also enjoyed getting the chance to lead some meetings to demonstrate my software to my bosses.

Downers

I liked everything a lot with my internship but what I least liked is testing, because of the monotony, but I was warned in the interview that it would be so I can't complain to much about that.

Advice to Potential Interns

Work hard and don't be afraid to ask your bosses for more work if you really are there to gain experience.

Yes

it was an excellent experience where i learned a lot of things with professional people and they shared to me, all their knowledge.

4.3 of 5 stars

Other (International) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The opportunity that they gave me to demonstrate what i can do, and the experience to learn with professional and expert.

the uncertainty of what will happen at the end of my contract

Came in with an open mind, came out with a bigger mind

4.4 of 5 stars

Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Everyones positive attitude around the office and willingness to help eachother

Downers

Working in what feels like an old/antiquated building

Advice to Potential Interns

Ask a lot of questions, never sit there wondering what you should or need to do. Sitting on one problem and not asking for help is not the way to go.

Sample Interview Questions

"Tell me about inheritance in an object oriented language" , "Tell me about a time when you had to make a hard decision that did not please everyone that it affected"

Advice to Management

Make getting 3par and HP accounts set up a lot easier, maybe get rid of cubicles?

Would You Recommend

Yes

Not what you thought Release Engineering was.

4.3 of 5 stars

Worcester, MA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

Working directly with engineers as just another (albeit, entry-level) engineer.

Downers

Projects sometimes were initially broadly given such that it was difficult to get started.

Advice to Potential Interns

HP honestly doesn't really pay well compared to other companies of similar size and prestige. The reason to work there is the environment.

Sample Interview Questions

HP doesn't grill its interns. They simply ask you for your education, experience, and skillset. They take you at your word for internships mostly.

Advice to Management

More compensation, other big companies pay more than $10 more per hr.

Would You Recommend

Yes

Amazing opportunity to learn in a real world setting!

4.4 of 5 stars

San Diego, CA | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

The project you work on matters to HP and is applicable to their everyday business. The people and the environment were very welcoming and relaxed.

Downers

I would have appreciated a little more guidance from my manager in the beginning of my internship.

Advice to Potential Interns

From my experience, HP would be a wonderful company to work for. The people are great, from top-line managers to fellow employees. HP makes sure that every employee knows they matter.

Would You Recommend

Yes

great people, great experience, and a lot to learn about.

Uppers

Everyone here is extremely glad to help out. There is a large team feeling here

Downers

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

Advice to Potential Interns

Asa first internship I had no idea what to expect. But this work environment is something I can get used to

Sample Interview Questions

(I was the head lead of a team creating an autonomous robot for my school's competition)

-What do you do as the head lead?

-How are you planning to test your robot

-Next time what would you do better?

Advice to Management

More mentoring for the interns

Would You Recommend

Yes

A great experience to be a part of the cutting edge of cloud software in OpenStack.

4.4 of 5 stars

Other (US) | 2014 | VERIFIED INTERN

Uppers

I was allowed to develop software which will be deployed and used in a production environment in the real world.

Downers

Much of what I have learned in my college career hasn't been directly applicable to my daily tasks. The scale of software in production is many times larger than any program I've written in college so far. It seems that the ability to perform successfully relies on your knowledge of the codebase, rather than your skill in developing software, which makes learning the codebase very important.

Advice to Potential Interns

I would recommend an HP internship to any other student who is currently evaluating it, especially if it is within the HP Cloud organization.

Sample Interview Questions

Do you know what the Cloud is?

Would You Recommend

Yes
