I worked at IBM France full-time (less than an year)

Pros

- Great exposure to cutting edge technology.
- The majority of workers I met were highly skilled.
- Internal documentation and resources are of good quality

Cons

- There is a LOT of politics going around.
- The company has too many layers of management.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

- Avoid getting into politics. A company is about getting things done.
- Recognise people who work hard. Many senior engineers were longing for just a small raise in salary.
- Less Talk, More Action.

    Current Employee - Software Sales Specialist in Paris (France)

    I have been working at IBM France full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good salary
    Incentives
    Training
    Travels
    International culture
    IBM is a now major player in middleware software and services while hardware and consumers products have been sold.

    Cons

    IBM is a big elephant that moves slowly. It is also like a masonic society. Managers are not promoted for their background, value or performance but on how they do politics internally. This company has more a financial and semi technical culture than a sale culture like Oracle. Good sales people usually end up disappointed and quit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think out of the box, mainframe and servers are dead business.
