I was always very proud to say I worked for IBM.

Program Manager (Former Employee)
Austin, TX

ProsWorldwide respect and recognition. IBM is one of the most trusted companies in the world.

ConsIn the last few years it became all about the stock price and promises made to Wall Street. Financial spending decisions were all but removed several years ago from employees and lower management. The simplest of financial decisions now take many levels of approval.
For many years I would have given 5 stars overall, but in the last few years not the same.

Advice to Senior ManagementGive teams at the first and second line level an expense and capital budget then leave them alone until next year. That includes every thing, travel, education, salaries, head count, etc.
Pick the numbers for the year, not the quarters, and go away. Then evaluate what they did with what they were given.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
