  1.  

    Corporate structure to help you succeed. Liberal social agenda either a plus or a minus.

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

    Pros

    Great technical support networks to help you excel ... either to help you acquire new skills or to help you with specific technical problems.

    Cons

    North America not a "growth market" hence declining needs here. (The pond is drying up for us fish.)

    Former Employee - Information Developer in Toronto, ON (Canada)

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

    Pros

    The facility is great, my manager was very understanding and encouraging, and most of the experienced developers and managers are friendly.

    Cons

    Very bad learning environment due to lack of standardized educational material or procedures. Very help based system of work, you have to constantly ask for help, asking for help itself is a waste of time in my opinion.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Could use a little more experienced/skilled employees to help the new comers. As well as classes and one on one sessions where new comers will be taught for a few months, before they are left to their own.
