    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    If in the right division and position, good culture and ability to grow. IBM still a consistent brand and vendor with large customers (low in mid-market), continues to drive the "back-office" of the enterprise.

    Cons

    Very bureaucratic, if not in the right management structure could be difficult to navigate. Complex relationships internally between brands and groups, need to be able to maneuver through a thoroughly diverse set of organizations. Not uncommon for a company with excess of 100k employees (x4).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Managers - Focus on talent. Hire the best. Allow them to get outside the box. Help them navigate the engine that is IBM.
