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

Pros

They would communicate with you patiently no matter what problems you met. You can share your idea freely and the atmosphere there is perfect!

Cons

Sometimes you feel working there is not very efficient and at a quite slow pace. There are some fixed steps to do things. Once you finished a project, you need to a lot of paper work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If possible, I think employees need some flexibility when they are working.

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

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, decent location, and cool projects.
    Manager treated all interns nicely and didn't give us the crappy jobs.
    Had a lot of fun overall.

    Cons

    Housing can be expensive. Projects are difficult so it wasn't really a easy job. Interview process was not very selective and some of the code had serious bugs that were not caught until several months after the release.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great team, awesome people and Watson

    Cons

    Salary and continual pressure to do more / better / always be on the limit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start with Why (Simon Sinek)! Forget Utilisation targets and learn to value people and their contributions. Innovate, research, push boundaries like Smarter Planet. Utilisation / Targets were at their lowest in the 60s and IBM's sales team were the best in the world! Give people freedom and space to innovate and exceed expectations. Don't force people to exceed Utilisation targets to get ahead.
