    I have been working at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    IBM has a network that extends beyond borders and has a support system to give every employee an equal chance at gaining the experience they want. IBM has the ability to give their employees everything they need to be successful as long as long as their employee's utilize their resources and networks.

    Cons

    Big companies have a lot of people meaning there are a lot of hoops employees must jump through to get to where they want to be in the company.


  2. Great Resume Builder

    Pros

    You get the opportunity to work with some great people in various organizations. The travel has its perks (you can keep all of your accumulated points for personal use). There is opportunity to learn various facets of a project from beginning to end.

    Cons

    The training to prepare consultants for client-facing roles is non-existent and you can be "placed" into an area of limited knowledge just to make the numbers for a project. Very political!

    I have been working at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good work life balance. A lot of freedom to pursue what motivates you. As IBM transitions into the new age of tech companies they are really attempting to invest in young talent and that is great for interns

    Cons

    Huge company so not a lot of exposure unless you put yourself out there.

    I have been working at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I really like how accessible people within the company are, regardless of their standing in the firm. I also like how CBDers are supported and bring youthful energy into projects.

    Cons

    I didn't have the most typical intern experience and was not taken care of properly. Two of my assignments were canceled due to lack of funding and I was placed on an internal role which was not consulting in nature. However, I am still finding things to do.

    Advice to Management

    Fewer email chains -- more action!

    Pros

    Intelligent co-workers, dynamic work environment

    Cons

    Very political. Current Leadership are not experienced software sellers. Leadership are institutionalized IBM'ers

    Advice to Management

    Compensation should be on activities that drive revenue, instead of activity that measures activity. Time for new blood. Thin the heard at the GM & VP levels

    Pros

    Provide great flexibility to employees especially women. You can switch easily across domains and grow laterally and also work across geographies.

    Cons

    There are some cons to working at IBM as well, foremost is not competitive compensation. And the growth path is very cumbersome and the process for doing a simple thing can be cumbersome and time consuming.

    Advice to Management

    The advice is to increase the compensation structure and make make it competitive in market and also reduce the processes so that things can work smoothly without much effort to employee.

    Pros

    what does a "job" mean to you? I believe everyone has different answer. But to me, this job with IBM means a better life, I'm feeling safe and grateful. This is what IBM gives me. She gives me a job for living, a life for safeness, a future to imagine bravelessly. No matter what other people say or think of this 104 yrs old Blue Giant, I define IBM with my own feeling and experience. I'd say, I will always remember and thank to her no matter wherever I go in the future.

    Cons

    Can't think of at this time. If shuttles for all sites could be provided, some free food like those internet companies could be served, innovative workplace could be applied to all sites, that will be better.
