I worked at IBM full-time for more than a year

Pros

Big company with a great customer base and world wide name recognition. i.e. Good for the resume.

Cons

Very little ability to adapt new and needed practices associated with acquisitions. Very high pressure on sales side and definitely a "good ole boys club" component. Internal competition between various groups and political jockeying means that the customer gets whats best for the biggest player at IBM, not whats best for the customer.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Way too much to list here. The entire company needs to be overhauled from the inside out... much like our government.

Doesn't Recommend
No opinion of CEO
