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

7/10

I am a IT Specialist. This is a very generic name but I specialise in development and testing.

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

8/10

I have developed knowledge and skills through internal events/online training but mainly from other IBMers.

3. To what extent do you enjoy your programme?

2/10

I enjoy it when I am busy (which is never!). The majority of the time I am bored with nothing to do (even if I ask for work).

4. How valued do you feel by IBM?

1/10

No. It is hard to get noticed.

5. How well organised/structured is your programme?

2/10

I don't know what I need to do for the programme. There is no structure/criteria in my eyes.

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

9/10

I am a very independent person and I only ask for help when I really am clueless. IBMers are very supportive and are always willing to help if you need it.

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

7/10

As I said previously I only ask for support when I really need it.

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

1/10

15K is not enough with the amount of travel I do (which IBM don't cover).

8. Are there many opportunities outside of work?

10/10

As many as you want.

9. Would you recommend IBM to a friend?

No

9b. Why?

The people are great. The structure and apprenticeship just seems like its missing something to me.

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

Simply be yourself.
