    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 Management

    - 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.

    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.

    Pros

    Learning a lot. get to interact in an office environment. seeing what its like to work in the field i am studying. gaining real world experience. and most importantly having fun.

    Cons

    9-5 can be exhausting at the beginning and takes some time to get used to. there is a lot of passwords to keep track of.

    Advice to Management

    have the interns write down all of their passwords at first then they can destroy the paper later.

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

    Pros

    I love the people and the innovative culture. I appreciate the guidance from my managers. I feel fulfilled in my work.

    Cons

    I do not like only being an intern. It is a good program but it is hard to feel so new in such a big organization.

    Advice to Management

    I think a longer internship than 2 months might be helpful with greater emphasis on in person teamwork.

    I get to work from home, and yet still have amazing support from my team. When in the office there are programs for continued education, networking, and post graduation job placement. Its clear that IBM wants you to succeed, and they want to take care of you.

    Cons

    There are none that I have experienced.
