    I worked at IBM full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Work-life balance was nice. All of the other interns were pleasant. Really focused on developing you. Salary was probably the best one could get.

    Cons

    Work was sparse. They could have had 50% less interns.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure to line up challenging work ahead of time. Give different interns a specific technical field to focus on the entire summer.

    I worked at IBM as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I was able to go from one department to another experiencing different aspects of the company. Aspects that most college-aged kids are unable to obtain. Being immersed in the law department truly gave me opportunity to see what corporate law is like, and what type of law I may want to do in the future.

    Cons

    Since it was my first experience in such a large corporation, I wish that I was given more training. Many things were new to me, and I was unaware of what was being discussed. Though the new information turned out very educational and helpful.
