I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

IBM has a true grasp of business, plans well, and teaches its employees. It is the perfect place to begin a career and learn all you can. If you can manage to stay relevant, it can also be a great place to end your career, aka retire.

Cons

IBM has lost some of what used to be what set it apart: Respect for the Individual. It was too quick to try to mirror some of the behaviors of newer, fresher companies in the 80's and 90's. Most of those companies are no longer around; IBM managed to outlast them, but at the cost of some great talent.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Remember to foster the loyalty that made IBM a great company. An employee having a rough time may say the wrong thing to the wrong person and in a flash their career is over.

    Pros

    Anything can be done at Big Blue and you will meet and work with the talent that shows it.

    Cons

    Newer hires frequently lack the IBM gene, outside hires not bleeding blue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sell cadillac solutions and make clients pay for them. If they don't want a Cadillac solution, let them go to a lesser vendor. We don't want ther business.
