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

Pros

Great overall learning experience as an intern, pay was competitive, friendly coworkers and management.

Cons

Not many options for buying lunch unless you want to go off site or bring your own. Sometimes it can seem as if you don't have time for anything but work, depending on the team you're on.

    Former Employee - Team Leader in Markham, ON

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Flexible work hours
    - Company pride/reputation
    - Opportunity for personal development
    - Worldwide organization
    - Connection to academia

    Cons

    Company policies on work flexibility are only as good as your manager's opinion of them
    Salaries are lower than market
    Large corporation means slower to adapt to new technologies
    Benefits could be better
    Little training for new managers/emerging leaders
    Training has to be approved by your manager; you can't always take a course for interest to grow your career

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Accountability and transparency are so vital
    Better channels for putting forth a complaint about your manager
    I went to my senior manager about an issue I had with my manager and went nowhere; he sided with my manager even though she was being unethical and discriminatory based on the company's policies on diversity and work/life balance.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
