Pros

Access to a vast range of resources (financial and otherwise) for research, excellent mentoring system for research interns and strong encouragement to be creative. Excellent pay for research interns, excellent benefits (housing) and relocation offered.

Cons

Few work related cons, except that I interend over the winter and no transport was available from housing unlike in the summer. TJ Watson is very isolated and impossible to reach by public transport. Taxis are not expensive though (Typ 15-20$ from TJ Watson to Mt Kisco)

Advice to Management

Keep running the research intern program, and perhaps consider a little closer how to coordinate interns who do not intern during the main summer block

    Pros

    Lots of flexibility to work in a variety of capacities with a variety of technologies. I could imagine staying at IBM forever and not getting bored.

    Cons

    Nearly exclusive focus on shareholder value at the expense of employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on the longevity of this 100+ year old company, than on short term stock performance.
