    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    - Big organization. Many opportunities across geographies and divisions
    - Nearly all big clients have an account. So easy to be associated with the interested domain

    Cons

    - Technology focused and solutions tend to structure more around products and technical solutions rather than management ones

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Encourage IBMers to pick up opportunities with other divisions. This will help groom them to be better leaders.

    Hardware business increasingly being marginalized by higher-margin services

    Current Employee - Advisory Hardware Engineer in Hopewell Junction, NY

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    IBM still has some of the world's best engineers, and we have access to cutting-edge technology. Work-life balance is excellent. Compensation is decent.

    Cons

    Our new CEO, Virginia Rometty, seems to have no vision for the future of the company. She's a manager, not a leader. The semiconductor business, where I work, is increasingly being pushed aside in favor of IBM's higher-margin services business, which is itself increasingly moving to India. Working in semiconductors has become mostly an exercise in cost-control rather than innovation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you're serious about being a technology leader, you need to invest in the resources to make it happen. If not, then just go ahead and sell the Systems and Technology Group to another company before all the good engineers leave.
