I worked at IBM as an intern (less than an year)

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 ManagementAdvice

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

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Hi tech company who excels at being the leader and the innovator for hi end computer related technology such as servers.

    Cons

    Can not compete when something becomes a commodity. So you always need to be in a developing part of the business, not in what becomes a commodity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead more from your strategy and less from wall street's response each quarter

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

    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 ManagementAdvice

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