    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    More successes than failures and more smiles than cries. Great career opportunities, skills and experience acquired at IBM prepared me well for life after IBM. Always remember that satisfaction and success with any company is up to the individual. I retired from IBM with no regrets. I actually thanked my manager when I was told that I was impacted by the resource action. I left with no anger towards the company. It was a great run!

    Cons

    IBM is slow to react to changes in the industry. Lack of vision or strategy. For years, the answer to improve the bottom line was to reduce cost. Too many layers of management has destroyed the creativity and vision that once made IBM a great company that was the envy on the I/T industry and business community in general.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get new talent that can think and act beyond cost reduction as the answer to poor company performance. Develop a client centric culture. IBM is top heavy, it takes too long to get anything done.
