I have been working at IBM

Pros

they have their challenges but are looking for ways to improve and they have something good with the cloud initiatives

Cons

a lot of people jockeying for just a few jobs and it's easy to get complacent. a complete matrix organization

Advice to ManagementAdvice

earnings are now the most important thing, so please just say that instead of creating new values for the company.

    Pros

    Very talented and technical work force. Its a great place to learn a lot.

    Cons

    Advancement within the company is very slow. Changes take forever to be put in place. Upper management only cares about stock holders and not about the employees. Treatment of employees is very poor. Company is very against advanced degrees... fear of loosing people and its quite difficult to move around within the company because everyone is so division/department centric and managers are not willing to loose their good employees to other departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to realign the company towards building careers for employees instead of being a job shop. The recognition/advancement of top employees need to be much better.
