    Pros

    Whatever you want to do can be found at IBM. Pay can be good depending on what part of the business you enter. Ability to work at home for most job functions is great for work-life balance.

    Cons

    With such a big company you can get lost unless you seek opportunities. Bureaucratic much like any big companies.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify IBM from the inside out, it will resonate with clients.

    Unstable long-term US employment, but, otherwise a great opportunity.

    Pros

    IBM provides employment flexibility, independence and a sharing of knowledge with professional co-workers. As an Enterprise Architect and Trusted Advisor, I was able to provide strategic influence over customer technologies and business operations. It was a great opportunity to help many different organizations.

    Cons

    I had little influence on IBM's direction and management seemed to have been trying to figure out what the next leadership direction might be, at least regarding US employment. Employee concerns over employment may be summed up in a remark I heard... There are 2 types of IBM'ers, those that were laid off, and those that fear they will soon be laid off.

    Advice to Management

    Stop chasing the 2015 promised stock value and start rebuilding the US presence. The return to shareholders for 2015, as promised, would be nice, but, keeping the company operating beyond 2015 would be even nicer. ...Best wishes.
