Associates… and your growth as an engineer (Mar, 1956)

Associates… and your growth as an engineer

Do your associates stimulate your thinking? Are your managers receptive to your original ideas? At IBM, an engineer can answer these basic questions with an unqualified “yes.”

In IBM’s modern labs, engineers sense the professional excitement that stems from a continual interchange of original ideas. Their contributions—even on projects not specifically their own—receive sympathetic hearing from men whose management positions were attained by outstanding engineering achievement.

IBM’s world-wide reputation for digital computer design and development confirms our belief that a talented engineer should be actively encouraged to grow—without restrictions —to the fullest limit of his ability.

If you have a degree in E.E., M.E., or Physics, or equivalent experience, find out what IBM’s tradition of engineering excellence can mean in terms of your own future growth and achievement.

    “Join IBM, and surround yourself with the disembodied heads of nerdy white guys!”

    I’ve had worse job offers.

    OMG, the guy in the middle gives a new dimension to the meaning of clean-cut. He makes a Ken doll look like a scruffy, evil monster.

    Is that Woody Harrelson on the left? And Stephen Colbert two to his right?

    And here at IBM, it’s still EXACTLY.LIKE.THAT! . . . not

    (But it was eerily close to that when I joined in ’79 ;^)

    Don, you don’t know how much I’d love a job where disembodied heads floated around the work site.
