I worked at IBM as an intern (less than a 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.

    Pros

    You get to working with best-of-breed professionals interconnected worldwide to share knowledge, capabilities and completely different competencies. You are in a privileged position for understanding and applying latest topics (e.g., Big Data, Analytics, cloud computing strategies etc.)

    Cons

    Poor salary, insignificant salary reviews, meaningless criteria for evaluating employees.

    Being a huge company there is a huge load of processes and people involved even in he smallest activities, this often makes it hard to put in place dynamic initiatives in a timely manner and bring overload to your day-by-day work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a higher education
