    I have been working at IBM full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    The attorneys and partners are all very welcoming and informative when there are unknown territories in the line of work. The work environment is also very conducive to growth in the firm and in the market.

    Cons

    During the summer, business ramps up due to increased home buyers in the market. This leads to longer, but still very manageable work weeks.

    I have been working at IBM as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    - Present to the CEO
    - Submit Patents
    - High Pay
    - Housing was covered 100%
    - Full-time benefits (e.g. Airfare discounts and car rental discounts)
    - Austin, TX is nice

    Cons

    - Texas is hot I guess
    - People bash on building 45, and they're right, it is a bit ugly
    - The play feels empty
    - Workers are honest about IBM almost even to a fault (I kind of like this though)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Work on getting more people to come on campus to work--too many people working from home, makes the place feel empty. Although ~7,000 people work at IBM Austin, it only ever feels like 2,000 of them are on campus.

    Amazing People, environment. A lot of transparency and opportunities for interns
