Pros

IBM offers a lot of innovation like Watson and advancements in future technologies (I.e. Nano).

Cons

There is little innovation available in IBM services. We are very locked down to sell only what IBM creates or what it's approved partners offer which makes for a very repeditive, production line feel to the job. There very few opportunities to develop innovative, outside-the-box solutions. I can only use what IBM and it's approved partners offer even though there are other suppliers with more innovative offerings that I could use in the past. With all of the layoff over tha past year, I find a lot of low motivated employees with little creativitiy that tend to focus on how far away they are from retiring.

Advice to Management

You tend to spend more time focused on IBM invenstors and how the company looks in the market than really understanding how the company is functioning and the impact on the employees and their output.

    Pros

    IBM name and reputation, Product Quality, Highly talented development team

    Cons

    High rate of organizational churn, internal processes are arduous

    Advice to Management

    STOP THE MADNESS. The churn is impossible for the employees and the customers to manage.

    Pros

    Work with the smartest people you will ever meet, solve important problems with big brand clients

    Cons

    Big, complex, too internally focused

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on delivering client value, less on earnings per share. The first leads to the latter sustainably. Too much priority on the latter erodes the former over time.
