I worked at IBM part-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

I worked and IBM research and it was a place for great minds to meet. The environment was conducive to challenging yourself and to excel at whatever you did. The possibilities were limitless.

Cons

IBM is a large company and no mater what you did it did not seem to impact the company much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Spinning of groups to work as almost a separate business unit gave the groups a lot of autonomy and a sense of accomplishment when success metrics were setup just for that group.

    The depth and breadth of IBM skill is impressive. Everywhere you turn there is someone willing to help and make you better at your career. In IGS, you have the opportunity to work in many different industries and on smaller project teams.

    Cons

    IBM is huge and can be overwhelming at times. That said, they do a great job of making you feel part of the team.
