Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Some very intelligent coworkers...when you can find them Large resources and thought leadership...if you know how to navigate the org Good work like balance

Cons

Too many hands in deals...people get paid when the don't contribute They don't pay enough in Client Executive roles If you are not a lifer, your chances of coming in and moving up are limited

Advice to Management

Start realizing the economy/job environment if more fast paced and fluid. You can't tell high performers it will take 5 years to reach their next career level.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Huge company with global opportunities. A recognized industry thought leader. If you are well liked by senior executives, you will move up quickly; likely to above your level of competence..

    Cons

    Huge company with a lack of respect for individuals. There is a persistent declining emphasis on United States based jobs. If you are seeking a career overseas, in a growth market, this is the place to be.

    Advice to Management

    Cut the beurocracy. WAY too many executives with no clear mission or responsibiliy.
