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

Pros

Very good experience, everyone was very friendly and collaborative. Got to work on some pretty interesting things, obtained experience in technologies that would help with getting another job.

Cons

Sometimes not much direction was given in what one should do to tackle a problem (though help was always available)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing things the way you are! Hire more bright young minds to do work.

    Great company for a self-starter looking for little to no oversight.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good resources for internal education; plenty of opportunities for networking; opportunities for international work experience

    Cons

    Easy to "feel like a number"; frequent travel; working remotely with little to no interaction with clients or coworkers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It seems difficult for IBM's people managers to provide necessary guidance and oversight while tending to regular project responsibilities as well. Management seems overworked and burned out.

    Promote people managers who actually want to be people managers; make an attempt to assist staff in finding work more local to where they live
