From start to finish, my internship at IBM was a truly amazing experience.

Intern (Former Employee)
Somers, NY

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

ProsI 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.

ConsSince 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.
