Great company, but a bit slow moving and lacking in innovation

I have been working at IBM full-time for more than a year

Pros

Amazing company, brilliant people, strong client position

Cons

Viewed as too old school, slow to innovate and move in digital channels

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find ways to embed innovation into business models. Quarterly growth and acquisitions goals are great for building cash cows but there needs to be some innovations and entrepreneurialism to compete in brave new worlds of digital, social, mobile, and other areas of rapid growth and new technologies.

    Pros

    A lot of job opportunities, good for starting a career. Your happiness will greatly depend on the particular position you'll end up in. However be careful, most jobs in Bratislava are just copying excel sheets from one to another. The only thing you'll learn in these positions is how to live in a super-formalized environment.

    Cons

    Once you learn how to do your simple daily tasks, you will become constrained by IBM formal culture. The company in BA is everything but innovative (e.g. still using office 2003 if you can get your hands on one) and it is hard to come up with initiatives. But, again, this all depends on the position you're in. I would not recommend doing a career in IBM's International Services Centre.
