I worked at IBM as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Big company and leading brand in the field.

Cons

Completely number-driven management, often unable to look beyond the current quarter. Lower and middle management fairly distached from actual work done by their employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Engage more with the day to day work of employees to get the ability to qualify the numbers reported.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Have seen getting good flexilibility in terms of work but not seen in my project.
    More project/account oriented rather than company oriented.
    It all depends in which project you are in.

    Cons

    No IBM leaves and no client leaves. Only mandatory leaves.
    More time oriented rather than work oriented and productivity.
    Seems more like a government worker as lot of favourism/groupism

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have some good profiles for upper management with good management and leader ship skills.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
