Great smart people, lots of knowledge to be gained, lacking direction and innovation

Pros

The people at IBM are second to none in intelligence and problem solving ability. You learn more working here for 5 years than you will at any other company. Lots of ability to know the whole computing industry and define what you want to work on

Cons

Upper management is only concerned about EPS. Thus squeezing most of the innovation out of the company. Most innovation is now accomplished by working extra hours and struggling versus being encouraged and part of the job descriptions. Lots of work as well making charts with pretty colors that executives and management can understand versus doing product cutting edge work.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Turn your company back into an innovation engine that actually matches the projected external image of us being a "smart" company.

    Pros

    Benefits are very good. For the most part there is some security in my job.

    Cons

    Cannot move into any internal positions outside of your local department. C level management more concerned with their pay/bonuses than the welfare of the employees or value for the stock holder. Basically the same as any large company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would not waste my time trying to give any advice to management, they would not listen anyway.

    No opinion of CEO
