Having Lenovo on resume

What are your experiences with looking for a new job and Lenovo on resumes? I've heard from a lot of people that it's not very commendable, or a big plus to have Lenovo on one's resume. I'm just starting to look for a new job and for now and I don't think that prevents me from getting a new job.

I don't know if listing Lenovo is good or bad, BUT make sure to put what you achieved / accomplished at Lenovo. For example, did you improve a process for efficiency, did you train any coworkers, did you beat quota, etc... and tie that into a measurable quantity, such as closed a $2 million dollar deal. Don't just list your responsibilities.

No interviewer or employer will say one way or another to the candidate. Behind closed doors internally, it is not looked at as a positive. It is not necessarily a negative, but the bigger tech companies already know what they would get from the likes of Lenovo employees. It is going to a cookie cutter person that had no ambition to leave. Smaller tech companies that are more entrepreneurial would hate Lenovo on a resume. They are not looking for the corporate, catchup BS types. The highly talented ones have moved on from Lenovo before they are re-programmed.

It's neither good nor bad... I've never had any recruiter or interviewer comment about any company I've worked; they were all interested in what I did while employed there - I wouldn't worry about it.
