1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
My role is PMO and includes doing tasks such as change management, risk management, finance and scheduling We support the PM deliver projects by helping him with these tasks as well as host meetings.
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
yes many. This role has improved my IT skills a lot as well as give me more awareness of the business sector. The training for the apprenticeship has also extended my knowledge of project management.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy my job but I am not overly enthusiastic as sometimes it can feel like a business admin role which we were not aware of at all when we joined. In terms of the workplace and the people the job is great and it is a good opportunity. We have had issues over our future at HP as some apprentices are expected to graduate for the scheme in a months time and are still unaware of them still having jobs and pay
4. How valued do you feel by Hewlett Packard Enterprise?
I feel fairly valued at HPE. I feel as though I have an important role to the company but I do feel as though that my role has less importance than others.
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
The programme in terms of learning from our provider is great but in terms of HPE the programme does not have an organized structure.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
My training provider is great and makes huge effort to help us complete our exams and coursework, as well as making sure we are happy in the workplace
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
We receive an average amount. It sometimes feels as though we have been throwing in the deep end but it will most likely benefit us so overall the support is acceptable.
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
This is the problem. As a level 4 apprentice, we get the exact same pay as level 2&3's and our pay rise is not going to be great. We also recently found out that after the apprenticeship, our pay does not significantly improve which I feel is hugely unfair as I took this role as oppose to university so I would expect the same pay as a grad as will have 2 years experience and loyalty to the company.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
Unfortunately not. It feels as though you have to make a lot of effort for things like this to happen. We recently organized a 11 a side football match which was great but it is unlikely that will happen again any time soon
9a. Would you recommend Hewlett Packard Enterprise to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
I feel as though they have lied a bit to get us to work for them and then not give us the opportunities they have promised.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to Hewlett Packard Enterprise? *
I would advise them to not expect everyone to help them and that in most cases you must rely on yourself
