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

Pros

IBM does everything for everyone.. broad range of customers and experiences available. People outside IBM take note that you are an IBMer.

Cons

IBM's greatest asset of its size is also its biggest downfall.. very hard to get something done quickly. There is also an overall trend to squeeze the middle layer of the company, lower end work is done offshore..

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Slow the pace of upper management headcount growth

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    IBM is the traditional big company, but it embraces new ideas. IBM does so much that you can work on almost anything and still work at IBM. There are also external perks like discounts for rental cars, celular phone plans, and broadband internet.

    Cons

    The focus is big metrics as opposed to overall holistic information quality. This could result in lots of data rather than information. Just search for a product on the IBM web site.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more on technical expertise rather than some of the exposure politics for technical band 9 types.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
