Pros

IBM offers a wide array of resources available to employees. This includes project diversity, tuition reimbursement, etc.

Cons

IBM is difficult to navigate given its size and complex organization structure. Performance is often not sufficiently rewarded as the company tends to normalize salary within each level.

Advice to Management

Sr management needs to plan beyond the immediate quarter and invest properly in employee. There seems to be a significant talent drain in the last couple of years.

    Pros

    - good for graduates to get experience - good technical resources/knowledge - usually quick moves to different roles - leaders/management usually promoted to senior roles

    Cons

    - lack of support for professionals, you are expected to move to management position, if you are good in your professional area - generally lower salary vs competition for the same job - general move to internally outsource the jobs w/ decreasing quality of work (there seem to be no internal metrics for that)

    Advice to Management

    Decide if you want to attract professional talent and pay for it, or keep just keep IBM as company of and for leaders.
