I worked at IBM


-Employees encouraged to make frequent lateral job changes
-Opportunity to move across businesses without existing expertise
-Global organization; opportunities to gain global perspective
-If you gain your satisfaction mainly from activities outside work easy to find a job where there are low demands on your time
-Performance standards are low


-Unusually heavy process orientation, even for a large organization, leads to very low innovation
-Employees, even senior managers are so beat down by processes that there is little focus on results; mainly process
-Benefits are notably below average; company constantly seeking ways to indirectly reduce compensation by eliminating reimbursements, etc.
-Laggard in terms of technology adoption and innovation - you can quickly fall behind by staying at IBM
-Very high overhead of staff personnel/overhead cost; not likely to be sustainable in the long term.
