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

Pros

Access to a vast range of resources (financial and otherwise) for research, excellent mentoring system for research interns and strong encouragement to be creative. Excellent pay for research interns, excellent benefits (housing) and relocation offered.

Cons

Few work related cons, except that I interend over the winter and no transport was available from housing unlike in the summer. TJ Watson is very isolated and impossible to reach by public transport. Taxis are not expensive though (Typ 15-20$ from TJ Watson to Mt Kisco)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep running the research intern program, and perhaps consider a little closer how to coordinate interns who do not intern during the main summer block

    Pros

    Great company that gives you the freedom to do your job the way you want to. Great for those with an entrepreneurial spirit.

    Cons

    Sometimes the environment can be rather political. As with most positions, it's always important to have a strong internal network.

    I am an IBMer

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    IBM has some of the smartest people you will ever work with, who overwhemingly embrace a common value system.

    Cons

    Relentless cost cutting presents challenges and opportunities in traditional markets (North America and Western Europe) are limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While employees are a cost to be managed, they are also an asset to invest in. Try to strike the balance more on the investment side.
