I have been working at IBM full-time for less than a year

Pros

Pay was really high compared to what I'm supposed to get for being so junior. Nice office, really cool building, and really great people. A flexible schedule, yoga lessons, and gym. The company is really large and you feel like you belong.

Cons

No catered food and other things you can expect from a place like Google I guess. Also lots of bureaucratic tape I find. I didn't really get affected by that too much but I know my co-workers did.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less tape. More food.

    Pros

    Amazing Environment. You have your own space. Management was always available to talk. No one was watching you 24/7, as long as the job was done correctly and you met their deadline. Co-workers were very friendly and knowledgeable. You come in anytime before 9 and work for 8 hours.

    Cons

    There were days where I had to come in early because I was working with other people from a different country
