I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

There is an unlimited opportunity to learn about hot new topics at IBM. I have access to experts on just about any new technology and can ask them questions and give my views. There is also opportunities to apply this new knowledge on products or projects around the globe.

Cons

The raises have dried up in many areas of IBM. This is a big problem.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let's keep some left-brain / right-brain going on here. Numbers are important but a lot of IBMers think we make bad decisions sometimes because we don't understand our numbers.

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I remember in my first month thinking, "this is the most 'moral' place I've ever worked." People generally did the right thing for customers and each other; poor, destructive leaders are "managed out of the business." /// Amazing training opportunities.

    Cons

    Non-client facing people in support roles, working remotely (home offices) sometimes act less accountable than one would like.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Speed up planning & execution cycles.

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Company name and size, great work environment from the point of the people. Casual dress code, lunch times, and allowance to run errands if needed.

    Cons

    Projects change every couple years, cannot really become true expert at a single project.
    Always expected to learn new technologies then not too understanding when learning curve comes into play. Personal reviews every 6 months.
