    Pros

    - lots of divisions to move around
    - lot of exposure to almost any area you want to work on

    Cons

    - Meritocracy is not valued
    - you grow based on whom you know
    - Many people just hide in their role for years (basically work without having the right skills, but keeping good relationship with decision makers)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Remove the red tape in growth: good people will quit as they will take jobs elsewhere. Left on will be the politically successfull and the ones who stay hidden. Does not do good to business
    - hire talent and keep it engaged

    Pros

    I have worked both in headquarters and brands (GTS/SWG/IGF/STG). Brands are a sweatshop and very few people make it in there. Mine was a horrific experience. In my experience, the ONLY good thing about a career in finance at IBM is that you can expect your paycheck to be deposited into the checking account like clock work.

    Cons

    If you are an undergrad and looking to join IBM I guess it's OK; however, be prepared to get underpaid and overworked. It requires a certain type of personality to do finance jobs at this company, which are boring and mundane. Moreover, I have heard them describe some people at IBM as leaders and I am having a really hard time believing that's what a real visionary should be. At best, you learn how to deal with IBM's definition of an executive. Many are dumb but lucky, others are gestapo style because they don't know any better. Very few executives are pleasant to work for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's not your fault, you are a part of a big machine. It really starts with the senior executives.
