HP Inc has been making a push away from software solutions since the split from Enterprise, and steering into their hardware offerings. I participated in more code reviews and software training/collaboration on best practices as an intern than as a full-time employee. Structures are setup to send as much software work overseas as possible, while shrinking the remaining software teams located in the U.S. Multiple teams, including some outside of software, were completely erased practically overnight, with less than 48 hours notice given in some cases before shutting down.
My typical day would consist of morning meetings to catch up with the overseas development partners, at least 1 hour up to 3, followed by debugging some of the work from overseas. Lunch was at the unsubsidized cafeteria or at a nearby restaurant, followed by some kind of staff or team meeting for an hour or so. I would then have time for catching up on customer requests, which is generally how I would spend the remainder of my day. On average, I would have around 4 hours of personal work time on any given day, with the rest of the time being taken up by meetings or cleaning code from overseas. My personal work almost entirely consisted of debugging and maintenance efforts, because the backlog of defects grew faster than the team could handle for years before I joined.
