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

    Pros

    IBM has been around forever, so its very possible to work there for 20 or more years. Their benefits package has historically been very good. They have also made steps toward adopting a more flexible and casual work environment. Work-from-home flexibility is increasingly common.

    Cons

    Slow advancement. Mediocre salary. The upper technical ranks are clogged with old school engineers that have little exposure to modern innovations or methodologies. This leaves little room for new, exceptional talent to innovate, create fresh product value, or bring new offerings to the marketplace.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    IBM will fail to keep pace with younger, more agile companies that are able to bring innovative and more easily adopted solutions to market if it continues to grant such deference to its antiquated senior technical staff. Unless IBM finds a way to accelerate the careers and influence of talent with more modern approaches to problem solving and engineering in general, IBM will increasingly be seen as a relic of a bygone era.
