I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

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

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Range of opportunities from traditional high tech mfg. and sales, to software, to professional client services

    Cons

    Glut of under performing baby boomers protected by their network and longevity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Globally integrated enterprise is only meaningful when you can explain to a client what the transformation road map really looks like
