    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You'll learn everything there is to know about technology and big companies. It serves as a great training ground to someone wanting to cut their teeth on how the technology business operates.

    Cons

    Nothing new here....pay is well below other technology companies unless you are a high level Director or VP of a certain division.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the fat and pay the people who are doing the work a fare wage!!!!

    I worked at IBM full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere. Lots of things to eat and plenty of hot chocolate.

    Cons

    Atmosphere seemed juvenile at times. Not very professional. Also, the philandering got very distracting. It puts you in an awkward situation when someone in a Senior position has an affair with a fellow intern and is not that discreet about it.

    Advice to Management

    Filter people better. Those in Senior positions should not be dating interns. Frankly, it is unprofessional and looks bad on the company as a whole.
