Current Employee - Senior Product Manager in San Jose, CA

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

Pros

Excellent thought leadership & vision in the market, Good work life balance, good flexibility like working from home (teams are distributed all across the country), Good benefits, industry average salary. If you're getting a job at IBM, I highly suggest you work here for one year at least and figure out if this culture is a good fit for you or not. You will learn a lot here.

Cons

As usual with big companies, too many processes, takes too many approvals to get things done. You have to work hard to stand out, But that is true for any other company. Don't expect big bonuses or stock options.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of the slackers, and drive individual product teams like a startup culture, While leveraging the IBM branding, Sales and marketing machine to drive growth and revenue.
