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

    IBM is very successful and manages the business well. Salary and benefits are good (even great).

    Cons

    IBM manages the business very closely financially, which translates to reducing the workforce in reaction to quarterly sales and profits.
