My experience as apprentices is great but it really depends on the people you work with.

Apprentice In Marketing Software (Current Employee)
Bois-Colombes (France)

I have been working at IBM part-time for more than a year

ProsIt's a big recognized company which will offer many opportunities. Not inside the firm because they do not hire, but after for your job search. If you are lucky enough to be in a good department, like marketing department, you will have some benefits such as
- the possibility to work at home from time to time, you get a laptop which you can carry everywhere.
- having flexible working hours : no one will stare at you or make a not funny joke about the time you arrive / leave at you workplace. As long your job is well done nothing else matter.

Like I say before, people you work with are the key. I have an amazing team. They trust me, my work and I have responsabilities, interesting projects, I learn a lot.

ConsLike every big company they have process, too many ... I heard it was one of the worst. It is really boring to follow every steps, to have to fill tools with information, to get approval for every € spend...
There is also a lake of creativity, we do every the same kind of event and activity, because of all the process we don"t have enough time to create. And we work a lot with agencies which are here to deliver creativity.
The do not hire even if you succeed beoing the best of your open space... No way
When you arrive you really have to be proactive, work don't come by itself you must look for it, ask for it.
My experience is great as I said but many of my fellows are disapointed, they do nothing or ininteresting tasks as excels files, they are really bored.
As an apprentice we are really noy paid well 1100...

Advice to Senior ManagementI am really well managed, everyting was explained to me when I arrived and after.
But It's so not the case of the other trainees or apprentices, they are quite alone, they have someone to manage them who is appointed but they often don"t have time to care about the new one. They really should be aware of where are the needs in order to not waste an apprentice / trainee

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
