Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dubuque, IA

Pros

Looks good on a resume while you are looking for a job.

Cons

Don't expect to make any better wage than anywhere else in Dubuque or small surrounding communities
Unclear path to moving up
People go years with not a penny raise
Highest turnover rate any GDF Center in North America

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember you are also managing real people and not just there to please your management. Focus on building trust and morale - IBM may not allow a dime for overall team building of any kind, but you make much more than 90% of the employees there - so stop being so tight and buy your team a donut and coffee - a gift certificate - your ROI would be huge!!!! Have compassion - ask those you manage how they are doing - and mean it.

    Former Employee - Intern in Costa Mesa, CA
    Former Employee - Intern in Costa Mesa, CA

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

    Pros

    Very flexible and relies on honor system when it comes to interns. It is quite easy once you get used to what you do. Great way to experience the corporate culture and how they operate. Also makes it easier to fit in if you choose to become a regular hire in the future.

    Cons

    Sometimes lack of management on interns, you might feel a bit lost or under utilized if you don't have other side projects on hand. This can also be a plus since you can explore projects to work on yourself.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps some arrangements with interns to set up goals.
