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

    Pros

    Family friendly so wonderful for anyone who needs flexibility due to kids, etc, lots of work from home options. Great place to work if you are looking for work life balance and decent amount of job stability

    Cons

    Very tight financial controls. Necessary to a certain extent given the size of the company but need to find a better happy medium and let lower level managers manage their budgets and make decisions

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold managers and execs truly accountable for their finances so that you can bring management of budgets down to a lower level

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    You don't need much experience. Lack of certifications in any product /technology was never an issue. Great company for recent grads with no experience.

    Cons

    Certain IBM positions entail working long exhausting hours. Very little training if any. In my opinion, after the company requested and received US bailout money, the number of US positions that were lost to India increased.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some managers are great, some are not. My advice to Mgt is to learn from the managers that command respect. Poor Managers find it hard to be loyal to US Support, but those are the people you manage and should care about. Emerging markets should be secondary.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
