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

Pros

Very competative pay. Remote/WFH capabilities a definite plus. Great Intern bonus oppurtunities like lunches, tours, and dinners.

Cons

You are treated like a piece of hardware. Using your ID# you are even refered to as hardware. Very impersonal. All meetings were teleconferences so I never met 95% of the people that I worked with on a day to day basis. Outsourced employees are integrated into every level of the business process, even if the language capabilites are not 100% on par for efficint work streams.

Advice to Management

Insert some shreds of personality into the manotony of day to day work. The company went out of their way to make the experience around work more personable like adding a minigolf course, yet the overall environment still felt like I was a Business Machine.

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

    Pros

    Great people to work with. All were very nice and pleasant, especially managers, who are also very understanding. I had my 21st birthday while I was working there and my manager said he'd be angry if I came into work the day after and that I should go out and enjoy myself. Highly recommend interning at IBM. It seemed that every single employee that I worked with had been there since the start of their careers and would never leave.

    Cons

    Very boring routine, day in and day out. However, it helped me discover that accounting is not my thing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep educating and promoting from within!
