I worked at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Great place to meet people that can teach you a wide range of subjects.
Experience a highly process oriented work environment.
Oportunity to work with high end softwares and systems.
Oportunity to develop projects on your own, and develop them to help the company.
To see your efforts rewarded to you in a very professional manner, and exciting manner.

Cons

Burocracy sometimes is an issue.
High rotation inside the company.
Sometimes work/life balance can be an issue, but its rare.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

I think IBM is an extremely mature company that is very process oriented, but sometimes following some guidelines provided by the company, can limit the potential for more creative solutions.

    Former Employee - Technical Specialist in Markham, ON (Canada)

    I worked at IBM as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    huge student community if you make the effort to be a part of it
    depending on how your team works you can get lots of perks in terms of flex time WFH

    Cons

    depending on your team you can be stuck in you cube the whole time without time to interact with other students and expand your skillset

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    encourage students to participate in personal development activities at IBM. If I knew that I would have as good of time working there full time as I did when I was a coop student I wouldnt hesitate to come back even though my position wasnt what I want to specialize in.
