Some thoughts after some years.

Project Manager (Current Employee)
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

ProsPossibility to work and learn with some very smart and experienced individuals.
Highly valued externally as an employer.
New opportunities come up constantly.
Many different areas of technology and services where you can progress.

ConsThere seems to be a lack of structure in many of the business areas. Communication within large work groups is often insufficient and not transparent. Management often fully aware of the inputs/outputs that their function is working with. More focus on "IBM internal" rather than the client, which is in conflict with the values.

Advice to Senior ManagementMore focus on the clients and what they need in order to grow their business. Ensuring teams/functions have solid structure. Leading by example is something that is far too rarely evident.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
