Pros

The atmosphere and coworkers were phenominal. Had a Great time here, a nice work pace as well without too much drama.

Cons

At times there could be very little work to be done. This was not a failure of work to be done, but a failure from upper level management to approve said work.

Advice to Management

It does take quite a while to gain approval or permission to get some simple things done. Also there needs to be more communication between departsments to keep tools and equipment in assigned places.

    Pros

    IBM treats you well, both in compensation and professional / technical education, while you are there. You will be offered continual challenges and are expected to make your own way.

    Cons

    Surprisingly, IBM offers no job security, or stability, even for outstanding achievement. You are expected to make IBM successful, and your reward is in your paychack. There is no guarantee that your achievements will be considered during the continuous "musical chair" strategy IBM uses. Best advice - Get in, excel, and be prepared with an exit strategy.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is too far removed from the action. Get connected withthe people that are working hard to make IBM successful. Firsl level managers don't have much management experience, and don't "bubble-up" outstanding effort being made by their teams.
