    I worked at IBM for more than a year

    Pros

    Great managers - Super friendly and kind. Cared about our health. - Was allowed to work from home from time to time. - Great company name to have on your resume as your first job. - Pretty relaxed workload as interns were not expected to take on severe cases. - Had to learn outdated products but was valuable in the sense that I was able to learn and adapt quickly.

    Cons

    - Lots of turnover in the company. The product I was working on was sold a few months into my internship. As interns, we were forced to work with a different team but a similar position. - Working with a team remotely can be challenging at times. - May not always get what you signed up for. Heard lots of stories of people doing completely different work than what was written on the job description - Lots of times felt like we were just tax cuts, sometimes felt like a waste of time
