    Former Employee - Client Executive in Waltham, MA

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    IBM offers tremendous growth opportunities for employees. One can have many "mini-careers" all while working for IBM -- examples: sales, management, HR, program management, etc.. They continually invest in their people and provide ongoing education. Better than average compensation, good benefits, etc.

    Cons

    Unless you are opposed to working hard for a company who hold Business Conduct, Integrity and Customer Satisfaction to the highest standards, there really aren't any.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In this era or remote/virtual teams, try to ensure that employees all still feel a part of the strong IBM culture that was so important to IBMers in the 70s, 80s and 90s.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You will find that IBM prides itself on education the workforce, networking within the workforce, training the workforce. I'm not certain if you can find a better orchestrated internal system for improving employee performance and training for carreer advancement.

    Cons

    1. The amount of time performing tasks/training outside the normal work day with the client. 2. The extra 4 hours in a work week (44) amounts to almost exactly the same amount of time as 5 weeks of vacation. You effectively work off your vacation.
