Pros

IBM's solid benefits, a stable career path, and a reliable customer base make for a comfortable long-term work environment.

Cons

Difficulty competing with more innovative startups, extensive bureaucracy, and in-fighting between internal brands and products can sometimes make for a frustrating experience.

Advice to Management

Listen to your teams in the field and try to think outside the box occasionally. Stop building shareholder return by minimizing profit sharing bonuses.

    Pros

    Big network of New hires, get to move around to different projects, teleworking, and lots of resources and free education opportunities.

    Cons

    Consulting for the government, working at a computer for 9 hours a day, and being at the client site.

    Advice to Management

    IBM's upper management doesn't exactly care for people who have been with IBM for less than 3 years.
