I worked at IBM as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Extremely flexible schedules. As long as your work is done, you can do pretty much whatever you want. Ping-pong tables consumed a lot of my downtime.

Everyone gets an office, that's pretty cool too. It stays a lot quieter to do work.

Cons

There isn't a healthy medium of workload. You're either sitting around doing nothing for weeks at a time, or you're so overloaded with work that you have to come in early, stay late, then bring your laptop home at night to get more work done. Due to different timezones, phone meetings aren't always scheduled at convenient times (think lunch time).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work out a better training program. Managers/supervisors should be able to answer my technical questions, not send me on a chase to find the answers.
