Pros

Well diversified company with many opportunities for advancement and leadership. Management does a good job articulating your place in the company and how you can personally help achieve the organization's goals.

IBM also has a flexible work/life balance and work from home program, but be careful as with some managers, "out of sight; out of mind".

Cons

Many times you will find yourself spending unnecessary time working through "red tape" in order to get things done, which can mean many late nights in the office or working multiple weekends.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

IBM does a good job of defining challenging career paths and mentoring top talent employees, but they need to spend more time on compensation and rewards.

    IBM is a good place to work as a co-op.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    I am currently at IBM STG co-op. IBM has given me the opportunities to explore the possibilities available to me at IBM. I work with very knowledge people and the work environment is very dynamic and supportive. I am comfortable, and I learn a lot about subjects that one cannot learn in school--which is the most valuable type of experience needed. I am given responsibilities that affect the company going forward, and IBM empowers me to do my best by giving me all the tools I need to succeed.

    Cons

    The only downside is that if IBM does offer me a position it will not be outside my co-op area. I wish I would apply for other positions else where in the company internally. The only downside so far.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My manager and my managers manager are both very supportive and very helpful. They really know their subjects well and they allow me to concentrate on my course work as well.

    Pros

    resume builder, experience, ability to learn from others. The benefits are very good, hands down. The 401k match is the best in the consulting industry. You will be able to learn a great deal in a very short time frame

    Cons

    very large, too bureaucratic, managers with poor people skills. There are a good number of managers who are out to benefit themselves and no one else. They get bonuses based on their staff utilization and meeting numbers. Many IBM employees are just numbers to the staff. Its all about who your manager is at IBM. Bad manager = bad experience. Good manager = good experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Large amount of technical staff without people management skills
