1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:

6/10

I am the action management PMO for my account. This means that it is my job to chase down any actions that are raised in meetings in order to make sure that they get completed.

2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?

5/10

Yes, I have learned a lot about time management as well as being able to take succinct notes quickly

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

7/10

I enjoy the people that I work with which makes the work a lot easier to deal with, especially as a lot of us work away from home all week.

4. How valued do you feel by IBM?

8/10

I have had two roles in IBM and both have been essential to the accounts success which gives me a huge sense of responsibility and trust

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

4/10

It is fairly poorly organised and I believe this is due to the scale of the company, but everything is completed eventually.

6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?

4/10

We receive training once a month to learn skills that are not specific to the account but we recieve training when we join a new account so that we can complete our job.

6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?

6/10

IBM is always available for help however they require you to go to them and will not pick up on a lot of things unless pointed in the right direction. This is how I would prefer it to run though.

7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?

8/10

The salary we receive is good for the amount of time we have been in the company.

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

5/10

There are very few that are organised by IBM, they are done more on an account level basis.

9a. Would you recommend IBM to a friend? *

Yes

9b. Why? *

IBM pays well for the relatively little experience we have and we are treated as full time employees and not as apprentices.

10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to IBM? *

Make yourself stand out, you dont need to start with technical or business knowledge to get in to IBM, but you need to make yourself seem like you have a skill that not many people will have. Be confident in yourself and what you can do.
