    Pros

    The atmosphere is very chill, friendly and fun, but still productive. The work given to interns is real work. The mentors to interns are about learning how to become a better programmer and problem solver.

    Cons

    The setting up of computers and solving computer problems is not very efficient.

    Advice to Management

    Having intern events and keeping regular events for new hires is a great way to make people feel welcome at IBM, continue keeping Blue Newbs a thing. Having a better process for getting people set up would be extremely beneficial.

    Pros

    I retired after 32 years with IBM and must say the pros are development of employees, excellent salaries and good benefits. Autonomous work is valued.

    Cons

    Long hours is my only negative.

    Advice to Management

    Try to provide work-home balance for workers.

    Pros

    Everything you are required to do is reasonable (they hired you because you can do it!) and everyone is willing to help you along the way. Being an intern, they try to expose you to more than where you work, pushing you to network and experience other places around IBM that you otherwise wouldn't with just your internship. Overall, wonderful place to be an intern even if its not something you learn you don't want to do.

    Cons

    Currently the company is going through some reshaping, so the idea of opportunities is very vague. If you enjoy your job, being an intern makes you sad that this can't be your real position.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up! IBM management is some of the most smartest and nicest people you'll ever meet.

    Pros

    IBM is a leading global company. Working at IBM enables you to cowork with people around the globe. While working there, I had a chance to work with other financial analysts in China, India, Russia, Australia....etc. For those who just graduated from undergraduate, IBM provides great training. I built a lot of skill-set here.

    Cons

    The payroll is just ok.

    Advice to Management

    Be more innovative and do not be afraid of making mistakes. IBM will be a more innovative company if management can be more open-minded and willing to try something new. Stock price should not be the priority for a tech company.
