    Good Place to Learn. Easy to Get Lost in the Back Office.

    Current Employee - Financial Analyst Co-Op in Rochester, MN

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    -decent ability to work from home when needed (flip side is you're expected to be "online" at ridiculous hours. As a co-op I had to work until midnight once a month!)
    -good compensation for the MN area
    -tons of free education online, but it only applies to areas within IBM
    -work only with other finance people at the Center of Excellence, lots of face to face knowledge sharing and ability to move around within finance

    Cons

    -TONS of employee turnover, it's rare if someone stays over 4 years
    -not a lot of respect for the individual, most teams you support are not local, so there's only ST or phone conversations
    -very easy to get into finance in Rochester and get stuck, I'm lucky I got out while I could

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Non-finance manager needs to be more involved with career development of employees
    -COE was a good idea on paper, but it leads recruiters to miss the best talent that won't relocate to MN

    Pros

    Great people, work life balance is a priority and the benefits are solid. IBM really strives to breed a team atmosphere.

    Cons

    Very segmented, on some sales opportunities you will have 7 IBM reps involved. Simple things become complicated, and the chain-of-command is a little cumbersome.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All the kudos and pats of the back in the world don't mean anything when you cap your sales people's earnings.
