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

Supportive team environment and culture. Fairly good pay.

Sometimes feels lost in the grind of 400,000 other people, can be a challenge to get onto new projects.

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

    Pros

    Flexible time. Working home on Fridays.

    Cons

    Old people, old technology. My team members are almost 70, they are used to do what they've been doing for twenty, thirty years. They do not know how to train a new hire.
    Most of people work at home- making the office empty. There are not enough people I can ask questions face to face.

    Advice to Management

    Have the manager set up a formal training to new hires and communicate frequently
