    I worked at IBM as an intern

    Pros

    The company is huge and has its fingers in nearly every slice of the technology pie, so you will never run out of interesting things to check out. Lots of huge-client and government projects come through, so you get real experience in an enterprise setting. Locations all over the world. Starting pay is usually pretty good, but there is rarely room for it to go up.

    Cons

    The full time employees seemed unhappy and overworked. It was heartbreaking to see my boss, who earlier in his career was the lead architect of an extremely successful business software product, frequently coming in visibly ill from endless security audits and staying up all night supporting teams in other time zones.

    Advice to Management

    Flatten your organizational structure and put technical people in charge of infrastructure policy.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    People - Technically sound - leading the way - great place to work to share learning and impact on technology with the best in the business

    Cons

    Drifting away from production. Focus is on services and soft products. Starting to act like the rest of the industry in moving away from manufacturing.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget what got you here.....
