Good overall but times have changed.

(Former Employee)

ProsThe company has a long history, reputation (the name speaks for itself), great product, global, benefits, skies the limit for above/beyond contributors, resources and a great talent pool!

ConsIt's a big company therefore you'll have to contribute above and beyond to be recognized or to survive. Employees are just employees. Concentrate at what matters to the company not what you think matters. However, these are prevelant in most companies today.

Advice to Senior ManagementGo back to the foundations why IBM was a great place to have a career, not just a job. Make IBM the leader in all aspects not just inline with the competition.
