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

Pros

I love the fact that every task can be broken down to a series of smaller tasks which are then each solved and put back together for the overall solution. I also think it's great what we can work in just about every type of industry. I hate badly structured projects (code and phase-wise) and confusing POA

Cons

I have been with IBM since 2011. While it may be the workplace for some it is not fitting towards the environment that I wish to be in. Their learning resources are very limited due to the age gap of employees. Well seasoned employees retire before completing the training of new employees which leads to inadequate skill levels. The technology is very old and out dated, and as a developer you do not feel like you are contributing since the components are so separate from each other.

    Pros

    Very good working environment. Very co-operative colleagues and can learn a lot about the current engineering trends.

    Cons

    IBM may not expect the employees to contribute their experiences in other areas of the employees' expertise.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make use of the employees' other talents.
