An okay place

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsLots of great products and a wide variety of positions. You have the opportunity to travel and even work in countries all around the world.

ConsCompany has changed a lot in 20 years. It used to be a great, fun place to work. Now, however, the entire company is run by accountants. Not nearly the creative freedom that use to be there. The Wild Duck is extinct.

Advice to Senior ManagementTrust the employees to do the right thing. Fire 80% of the accountants. Even the lawyers are better to work with than the accountants now.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
