Software Engineer Inter

Software Engineer Intern (Current Employee)
Austin, TX (US)

I have been working at IBM as an intern for less than a year

ProsTech giant with massive resources and really talented people. You work on products that are touched by millions in mission critical areas. For such a big company, it feels very nimble. You can easily reach any employee worldwide through Sametime. It feels like a tight-knit environment, even thought you are 1 or hundreds of thousands. Every manager I have dealt with is awesome. Uber professionalism throughout.

ConsIt is a big company. It takes weeks to do some things that would be done in hours in a startup. I wish product development was more streamlined. That similar products were merged or shut down. And that products would not be saddled with every single possible feature.

Advice to Senior ManagementEvery single manager I have dealt with is awesome. So keep picking good people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
