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

Pros

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

Cons

Company 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 ManagementAdvice

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

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

    Pros

    Top management is smart
    Company is well run and very profitable

    Cons

    Too many lifers that have titles only because of their seniority
    Lots of below mediocre people at the middle and lower levels
    Much lower than industry standard compensation
    Moving up the ladder is hard
    Very very political

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your lower level is rotting and this doesn't bode well for the company's future. Make sure you pay better and put in an effort to retain people

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
