Pros

All the people I worked with were friendly, professional and very helpful. They paid well and had great opportunities for your career path.

Cons

I worked for FileNet that was acquired by IBM, so my experience may not reflect a typical IBM employee. I have heard that there is a lot more red tape now with a bigger company.

Advice to Management

I don't have any advice for management.

    Pros

    IBM has some of the nicest work facilities of any tech company in Silicon Valley. Location of software development facilities is near the edge of town with plenty of residential housing so no need for a long commute to work.

    Cons

    Pay and promotions are hard to come by after the first few years. Your once competitive entry-level compensation can quickly become non-competitive after just a few short years.

  2. Great company, a leader in business, strategy works and is executable by sales team.
