I have been working at IBM

Pros

1. You learn the art & science of project and program management.
2. You learn to navigate a very large organization, the art of politics.
3. Customers tend to value you and you can (in some cases) bring real value to the customer.
4. IBM's education systems are amongst the best anywhere.

Cons

1. Managers and processes are designed for themselves, not for the people.
2. GBS is not a place for much innovation. ISL may be better.
3. There are minimal processes in place. It is pretty chaotic.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. IBM is actually pretty chaotic. Leadership has to understand the core philosophy behind havng processes. Process systems are actually pretty spotty.
2. Like delivery has responsibilities, KRAs, the support systems should have similar expectations. These are missing.
3. Please stop thinking IBM is the beginning and the end of the IT world and the rest of the world is a small pond. It's the other way, there are best practices out there that will make IBM at least 15 times more effective. Stop being arrogant, please be humble and open to the outside. No, INFY & Wipro are not "those other pure play" people. They are beating the pants off you in a lot of places.
