    Pros

    The good part of the personal experience: I started working there as a student intern who lacks working experience and truly learnt something during implementing the prototype they assigned me(java programming and j2ee architecture, database management, flex programming), relatively high salary, friendly workmate

    Cons

    The bad part of the experience: the particular location(Systems Center, Beijing) of the workspace is not convenient in terms of transportation(Shandi District in west Beijing)

    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 Management

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

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

    Pros

    IBM has good hours and good culture. Each team is different so you might have a really good or really bad time, or get interesting or mundane work (as an intern)

    Cons

    Work and responsibility depends on the team you are in. Quite a big company and thus it is political. Pay isn't top gear and reputation is only strong in some areas

    Pros

    Good Company environment, friendly people. And the project really depends on your team. For me, it's Watson, and since I like it, I think it's lot of fun

    Cons

    Not much work everyday. The workload is not so much compared with my coursework in the university. And cannot learn so much as you are in school
