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

    Pros

    Working at HP was a rewarding time that saw my professional skills improve greatly, but the career growth was not there. The project management team that I had while employed showed favoritism and did not show any interest in helping me gain the skills that would allow me to transition into a full-time position. At times it felt like there were certain interns that were given the benefit of the doubt when something was done incorrectly and others were treated as if they were on the verge of being fired if something was done incorrectly. Although there was no help from the project managers in my growth I did gain the confidence from one of the testing leads and she was someone that saw my dedication to the job and slowly gave me added responsibilities. I did have the ability to work flexible hours which was nice.

    Cons

    No commitment to professional development from PM team. Could be a hostile environment at times. No commitment to take time to understand how employees learn and utilize the skills and ability that they have.

    Advice to Management

    The advice that I would give management is that they need to make it more of a priority to help develop the leaders of tomorrow. Without the ability to be a mentor to the leaders of tomorrow you are doing a dis service to both the company and the leaders of tomorrow.
