Pros

You can definitely learn a lot at IBM either by going very deep on a topic or moving around to different jobs. Benefits are above average (but get trimmed every year). Lots of international opportunities. You get to work with people who know what it means to be a professional.

Cons

Resource actions (layoffs) happen at least once a year. Lack of organic investment in products. Internal incentives and silos get in the way of success. Getting harder to move from one group to another.

Advice to Management

Invest in organic growth of new and existing products instead of buying stock. Look beyond 2015.

    Pros

    Ran large teams and you can basically act as mini CEO's.

    Cons

    No knowledge sharing, training, lack of investment,and low pay compared to market.

    Invest or divest. You are killing your services brand in GPS with what you are doing currently.
