Pros

IBM provides opportunity for growth for those who deliver results. Strong ethics and values diversity.

Cons

For sellers used to driving business individually it can be a challenge getting used to selling in a matrixed environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect the personal sacrifices made by those people who generating the revenue for IBM. Restore the family values that IBM once had.

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

    Pros

    Flexibility, working from home (though recently that's being cut)
    It's a job (?)

    Cons

    Too many to mention:
    - company is entirely finance driven
    - no perks to working here
    - relatively miserable pay and bonuses
    - no stock options for a long time now
    - too much management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management is completely disjoint from employees and doesn't give a hoot about them.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
