The Role

1. To what extent did you enjoy your work placement or internship?

2. To what extent did you feel valued by your colleagues?

My Base role at IBM could probably account for 30 hours a week, it’s the other 10 hours where you are given flexibility to seek out new roles and engage in business which isn’t typically in your job description. I felt mostly-valued by my team and would encourage all work there to not get comfortable and find more projects to get involved in.

7/10

3. To what extent were you given support and guidance by management/your supervisor(s)?

I was given several resources to improve my skills here, this is something IBM does extremely well in! Education and guidance is a core value at IBM and you’re given several days/weeks to learn new systems and learn new skills steadily

9/10

4. How busy were you on a daily basis?

This is something that I got to decide, my average work week can consist of 30 – 50 hours a week depending if I’m involved on a project that has several deadlines occurring or perhaps its coming to end of the quarter.

10/10

5. How much responsibility were you given during your placement?

This fluctuates, although I have been given various pieces of responsibility but nothing too serious.

The Organisation

7. What was the general atmosphere in your office?

Typical office space, not much excitement most of the time, this may be due to the fact I work in Sales operations and all my team were on client sites. iX studio is pretty awesome and lively, I would reccomend working there if your looking for a buzz!

Cant fault this, Intership was set up amazingly, there was always buddy's/managers there to help.

9/10

9. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

11. How appealing are future employment prospects within the organisation?

Career projection seems pretty steady, general feeling is that they invest alot of time in you during graduate progression, after that I've been told fair fe employees leave fro competitors, Accenture/Salesforce/Business partners

5/10

Social

12. Was there a good social scene amongst any fellow placement students/colleagues?

There is a good socail scene, I didnt really get involved and found like I didnt really find my people at IBM.
