I worked at IBM

Pros

Opportunities to learn and move across different teams and technologies. Still a good company to be with over the long term if you can weather the storms.

Cons

Far too heavy management and fragmentation of teams doing duplicate work right now. Lots of talent going to waste. Good technology that never sees the light of day. Too much focus on 2015 Roadmap without any apparent thought to how it's being done. It's a disaster.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop a more coherent vision of what IBM is trying to be and make sure everyone knows what it is.

    I have been working at IBM as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    IBM seems to have such a foot hold and powerful name that it will likely never die. The company offers a fair wage.

    Cons

    However, the company has not seen the growth it would like in the past few years and I personally think that its current stagnation will be the new norm. IBM's services are more expensive than many of its competitors for no reason other than they are IBM. As new solutions begin to form for small and large businesses alike I fear for IBM's vitality. The benefits are slim, and with so many employees working remotely, the few useful benefits are difficult to capitalize on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Comprehensive training on the use of tools an employee is expected to use before they are told to use them.
