Pros

Profitable company
Sets long term strategy that delivers profitable value
Strategy is usually dead on, very few mis-steps from business execution
Shedding low-value, low margin businesses, investing in high value, high profit segments

Cons

Big company - sometimes difficult to work thru various layers of mgmt. (But if you have the right mentor, an IBM'r can help you figure out the best path)
If you don't stay close to the customer's viewpoint, can become part of the bottleneck problem.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing a great job on strategy and direction, so IBM'rs can go execute and deliver results for our customers and shareholders.

    Pros

    Great people to work with. All were very nice and pleasant, especially managers, who are also very understanding. I had my 21st birthday while I was working there and my manager said he'd be angry if I came into work the day after and that I should go out and enjoy myself. Highly recommend interning at IBM. It seemed that every single employee that I worked with had been there since the start of their careers and would never leave.

    Cons

    Very boring routine, day in and day out. However, it helped me discover that accounting is not my thing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep educating and promoting from within!
