Great people, great opportunity, concerned about the future

Senior Project Manager (Former Employee)

I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

ProsIncredibly smart, hard working employees, willing to share their expertise and support in achieving customer goals.

ConsFocus on cutting expenses (aka people) is destroying morale and the core strength of the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementAs the current CEO has noted, what makes a company great is employees who are committed to the success of their customers. The focus on cutting people rather than on creating value for customers is seriously undermining what makes IBM great in the minds of its customers, its people.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

I worked at IBM full-time for more than a year


Pros: A wealth of resources at your fingertips. Lots of opportunity… Cons: The systems and processes that have been prescribed for all… Advice to Senior Management: Give more autonomy to individual business units, don't force everyone to use the same computers, software, or expense system.
