Pros

IBM tries to take care of the top performers and give you an opportunity to move around and try different roles like technical, management, sales, services.
Overall I enjoy working here

Cons

As you would expect from a company this size, bureaucracy runs rampant and sometimes takes too long to get into new markets. Lots of people who spend a lot of time creating paper work of no value

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus on the core

Recommends
Positive Outlook
No opinion of CEO
