    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Global company with the potential to contribute to the development of their employees.

    Cons

    Fragmented into fiefdoms. Those that advance are more sycophant than able. Management is so focused in their quarterly survival and political posturing, that they have little time to actually work. Management mostly operates by the belief that if they shoot others' lights out, theirs will shine brighter. Definitely no longer Gestner's IBM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote based on ability not nepotism and ability to suck up.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
