I worked at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

There are still lots of smart people at IBM. If you like working long hours for little or no reward, this is the place for you.

Cons

This is the worst managed company I have ever worked for. None of the smart people I mentioned in "Pros" is in upper management. Although I see quite a few favorable reviews of IBM on glassdoor, in my experience the only people who think this is a good place to work are those who have never worked anywhere else.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

1. Focus on creating real value for customers rather than just acquiring new revenue streams.
2. Drop the rah-rah stuff; we are not fooled. True greatness is inversely proportional to the amount of it that comes out of your mouth.
3. Grow up.

    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.
