I worked at IBM as an intern for less than a year

Pros

Great people to work with. All were very nice and pleasant, especially managers, who are also very understanding. I had my 21st birthday while I was working there and my manager said he'd be angry if I came into work the day after and that I should go out and enjoy myself. Highly recommend interning at IBM. It seemed that every single employee that I worked with had been there since the start of their careers and would never leave.

Cons

Very boring routine, day in and day out. However, it helped me discover that accounting is not my thing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep educating and promoting from within!

    I worked at IBM full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    They hire with litle to no experience in many positions. Prior experience is no necessary. Always positions open.

    Cons

    Most have not had a raise in years. A lot of behind the scenses job band and title manipulation with no communication to the employee. No logical path to promotions. No ergonomic concerns. Tools inhibit prodicutivity. Computers and software are dated. Management are not here for the long term so no local loyalty. What morale? Management makes no attempt to remedy any issues - they have their own goals and it would not include employee retention.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some compassion and emphathy. Even a good management book would be better than no experience or education when manageing. Stop the micro manageing that went out a long time ago in an office envronment.
