Colloborative and challenging environment that provides you with the tools you need to succeed.
Pros: free coffee, cereal, snacks, nice people, collaborative, challenging
Cons: simple tasks can be drawn out as it is such a large company
Communicate regularly with internal/external partners
Analyze data on sales information
Assist in the management of technical software certifications, online ecosystem development and expansion, and the on boarding of new ISV partners.
What I learned:
How to create and analyze sales information from database information.
Requirements and – more... procedures for back end processes within IBM
More experience both written and verbally communication with external partners as well as colleagues internally
Gained more of a technical knowledge on databases, data warehouses, big data and the IBM pure systems family.
My manager was excellent. She helped me become a more well rounded employee and person. Provided me with guidance and challenged me to learn on my own. Really great manager, and was a very pleasant person to be around outside of work as well.
Very collaborative work environment. Frequently shared ideas and knowledge with each other. Directly worked with people with more of a technical background so it was helpful for me to gain new knowledge from them. Nice people and easy to work with overall.
Hardest Part of my Job:
The hardest part of my job was to adjust to hearing/understanding all the technical terminology that I was faced with daily. Without a technical background prior to this role it took some time to adapt, but after gaining experience I would consider myself fairly well versed and knowledgeable on it now.
The most enjoyable part of the Job:
Flexibility. At IBM I had the option to work from home somewhat frequently. So if you have regular commitments IBM really provides you with the ability to work around your everyday life that may interfere normally. – less
