  1. IBM provides a lot of flexibility to develop different types of software and at different layers of the stack.

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

    Pros

    Many really intelligent people work at IBM. High innovation and strong teamwork come naturally to anyone who focuses on their work and cares about the product(s) being developed. IBM is very serious about work/life balance.

    Cons

    IBM claims to "pay for performance" and they do. However, the differentiation on pay is not as strong as I would logically expect.

    Advice to Management

    Over the last decade, I have observed two main areas where IBM could improve. 1. The process for identifying and addressing poor performers within teams seems slow. Perhaps it is bound by corporate process. 2. Try to limit the amount of team changes, management/executive changes, and project changes. Increased frequency of changes leads to lower morale.


  2. Can't think of a better place to spend a career

    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 Management

    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.
