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

    Pros

    Compensation for an intern was competitive. Management that I dealt with was very helpful and supportive. Lots of respect for your work by allowing space for you to complete your work.

    Cons

    There wasn't a whole lot of change. Week in week out, it was the same daily routine. There was no opportunity to be hired to a full time position from the one I was in.

    + global-oriented

    Cons

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    1) Encourage entrepreneurship within the company providing for more and stronger ownership
    2) Establish high-performer units and take the burden of bureaucracy from them, letting them focus on what they can do best: acquire business and carry out successful projects. The client will sincerely appreciate this. Thank you!
