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

Pros

Outstanding people - exceptional integrity. For people who have an opportunity to work for IBM, it remains one of the premier enterprises on the planet

Cons

I don't have any real cons. With all of the acquisitions in the past 10 years, more than half the workforce has been with IBM 5 or less years. The culture is not what it was, but I think this is probably true for most companies

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue with the focus on growing profitiability. Without profit, nothing else is possible

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

    Pros

    IBM is a huge company and because of that there are many opportunities for long term employees to go overseas to China or India which are the only growth ares in IBM. They offer decent salaries after 20 years.

    Cons

    They are working towards a $20 per share earnings target by 2015. That has resulted in very deep, often ill advised cost cutting. There is no incentive to work hard and the bonus salary plans have been gutted to meet the 2015 goal. Employees come last at IBM, don't ever forget it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't forget who got you where you are.
