1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis:
PMO, this means that I am responsible for helping the general running of the account and making sure that hings such as actions from minutes are kept up to date
2. Have you learnt any new skills or developed existing skills?
yes, learnt how to organise, minute and run meetings.
3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?
I enjoy the programme however I feel that it is not necessarily very education focussed. It is aimed more towards the work that we do for the accounts than our own progression
4. How valued do you feel by IBM?
I feel that they value me greatly as an employee from a company perspective but feel that on the accounts we work for the other employees dont necessarily understand what we are here for
5. How well organised/structured is your programme?
We have formal training once every 6 months and that is about it, I feel that there could be more structure in order to try and achieve the end goal of passing the apprenticeship.
6a. How much support do you receive from your training provider?
I do not hear from the training provider, we only ever hear if there is an issue.
6b. How much support do you receive from your employer?
I receive plenty of support with regards to being able to take time off when i require it as long as work is not majorly impeded
7. How well does your salary/package meet your costs?
Salary is incredibly good for our age and I feel that the increases are timed well with our experience.
8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?
there are plenty of opportunities if you want to look for them but you are not forced in to anything which is good
9a. Would you recommend IBM to a friend? *
9b. Why? *
As long as the apprenticeship does not change from how it is run currently (by a significant margin) in regards to pay and training I feel it can be a good experience.
10. What tips or advice would you give to others applying to IBM? *
Be different and showcase what you do that no one else can. IBM reviewers like to see someone who has some unique ideas and will give you a good talking point!
