    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a place where you can work hard and see the results of your work and be recognized for your efforts. This year's recognition award was hosted in one of the finest hotels in Punta Cana and IBM made all of there feel extremely special. I've never had as much support by colleagues willing to help me than at IBM. You are working among the brightest, most innovative people willing to assist you. IBM is a company that has reinvented itself so many times to not only remain relevant but to maintain it's leadership position over well over 100 years.

    Cons

    Sometimes the large size of the organization can get in the way of itself. All the help I've noted in the pros sometimes comes at a price where we have too many hands in things.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in younger education and youth programs, so that the next generation of individuals are already very familiar with IBM's innovative solutions and past successes. We seem to be the best kept secret.

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

    Pros

    What I loved most about the company was the team dynamic. Everyone is working together for a common goal and there is a sense of unity. My peers were all willing to help and the work I was given as only an intern was valuable not only to myself but to the company. IBM is a great company to work for if one is looking to constantly learn and work through challenges, and provide value in a role

    Cons

    My experience at IBM is great, I cannot think of any cons.

    Advice to Management

    My advice to management would be to let those eager to learn sit in on meetings where one can learn even if it is just through osmosis.
