I worked at Hewlett-Packard as an intern (less than a year)

Pros

I worked with a truly wonderful team in the summer after my freshman year of college. My manager was very adept at leading, knowing when to give people their space and when to push them to perform. I was also assigned a mentor who took such an active and positive role in my education, always answering my never-ending stream of questions enthusiastically and cheerfully. I learned such an unbelievable amount from him. Looking back, I really think that almost all of my time that summer was spent doing things that meaningfully improved my knowledge of computer science.

Cons

Our team was often changing focus because of uncertainty in at the highest levels of management, so it was sometimes difficult to find projects for me to work on. But I believe my team made a real effort to keep my busy with meaningful work.

    Pros

    Good salary. Many advancement opportunities. Great culture. Nice people. Processes didn't seem overly complex for a large corporation.

    Pros

    Experience and knowledge, processes that work, friendly professional people, great place to learn and gain experience that are relevant and world class

    Cons

    Market was challenging 2007 to 2010 which was my employment period, this was reflected in raise, benefits and morale of the team. Restructuring was the norm with no room for upward mobility.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems to be turning around in the right direction, great job.
