I have been working at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Get to work on very large scale projects that make a big impact on the world. Lot of career mobility in both location and category. Not a lot of overtime expected.

Cons

The epitome of a bland and often boring corporate environment.

Advice to Management

Encourage more innovation and excitement.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Diverse projects, travel opportunities, some training opportunities available.

    Cons

    Your vacation cuts into your billable hours (At least in the consulting wing). WHich means, if you take the vacation days they lure you with - you have to make up those hours on another project. They treat their intellectual capital like machines, which is not how you compete for work. Terrible, terrible sales team & archaic practices for selling strategy & design. They have some real dinosaurs running consulting. Old school thinking, and no focus on employee development & happiness.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. We are not machines - we are human beings.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work environment, very nice collegues, keen to teach to each other. Moving among different projects keep the motivation pretty high, providing an overall good experience.

    Cons

    Salary is not too high, could be worth negotiating with other companies to get salary bumps. High expectations, no acknolegment of success, just failures are highlighted.
