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

Pros

Great people to work with, strong product portfolio, good tools and infrastructure to support sales employees

Cons

Byzantine, layers upon layers, too slow, Execs are all IBM lifers (need more diversity there)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring in some fresh blood, from smaller innovative companies

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

    Pros

    Vast knowledge base, ability to move laterally if you are looking to move to a different position. Tech refreshes have been executed very quickly. Free use of IBM spaces.

    Cons

    Poor promotional structure, intranet is extremely confusing and cumbersome to navigate. Company email is full of spam, forwards, and 'entire sector' emails, it's difficult to manage what deserves your attention.

    IBM buys companies for new technology, eventually outsource jobs overseas

    I worked at IBM (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    People I worked with were all very nice. Good work-life balance, especially working from home was nice. Fairly good benefits. You may find an exciting position if you are lucky.

    Cons

    Not as innovative as you'd expect. Sure, IBM invented Watson but it came from Laboratory, not from Software Group. Actually most of software portfolio came from acquisitions.
    Jobs by acquisitions will be outsourced oversea sooner or later.
