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

    Pros

    Brand name and prestige. In 3 months working for IBM, they have invested in my education by over $25,000.00.

    Cons

    IBM is quite a large company and you can get lost in it. Keep a positive attitude and make your Eminence known.

    Advice to Management

    Need to revamp New Employee Orientation. 1 day of orientation for a company this size is not enough.

    Pros

    Flexibility in schedule, management support, ability to work from anywhere when needed, travel, trainings to diversify skill set and/or expand knowledge in current position.
