    I worked at Aruba Networks as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The team I worked on was awesome. Very laid back and chill. I also feel like I learned a lot during my internship.

    The intern events were fun, and a great way to socialize with my fellow interns.

    Cons

    Salary and benefits were pretty mediocre for a large tech company in the valley.

    Advice to Management

    Don't let HPE's culture infect your own. You're doing great so far.

    Pros

    Hard working, collaborative team environment
    Smart individuals working to always give their best
    Work flexibility
    Appreciation of family and family commitments

    Integrating with HPE includes constant changes, increased work loads, process/procedure obstacles, and uncertainty.

    Employees viewed as a resource to get things done, but not appreciated or assisted

    Look beyond quantitative measurements to define success. If you invest in, and care about, your employees -- your employees will be motivated to make you and the company more successful.
