I have been working at IBM as an intern (More than a year)
Smart and Talented Staff
Learning experiences in your department are second to none
Flexible with School related issues ( Tests and Group Projects)
Remote accessibility allows for easy work from home days if there are poor weather conditions
Offsite training days allow for a nice break from the office while still being able to learn and interact with your team
Great compensation with Time and a half overtime (in excess of 40 hours a week)
Compensation Increases almost directly with the number of credits earned each semester as an intern
Company Softball League is a great stress reliever at the end of a long week (every Thursday in the summer)
Blue wave events allow interns to meet and discuss key issues with the executives of the company
Interns receive 5 paid sick days during the Year
learning curve on IBM in house language hard to pick up on
Acronyms have a variety of meanings
First month is a blur of trying to figure out how to use systems and understand whats going on in meetings
Fast pace environment
There can be some down time ( read as much material as you can and ask questions)
Advice to Management
Have more training secessions with interns or have interns write down a brief description of there duties and how they discovered the best way to accomplish tasks. This may serve as a break in the learning cure, allowing new interns to benefit from the success of past interns (specific to department) e.g. accounting.. Ultimately making for a greater experience for each intern that is hired in to the company.
Have one on one meetings with your interns every few weeks to see how they are progressing, and have a project that will be worked on by the interns and manger to enhance the manger employee relationship.
It would be nice to have one full time employee walk an intern through each of the systems that they will be most involved with during their internship.
