    Former Employee - Client Executive in DFW, TX
    Former Employee - Client Executive in DFW, TX

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

    Pros

    World class technology solutions; great, knowledgeable people; learn something every day; stellar reputation in the industry;

    Cons

    Huge & complex company to work for; matrixed orgranization makes it difficult to be quick & responsive to client needs; constant management churn makes it difficult to have clear strategy in place to execute; change is constant which makes it difficult to produce consistent results; top management unable to show revenue growth, but is very focused on EPS metric to make Wall Street happy;

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a 5 year plan for the company to grow and execute on it, instead of constantly changing the product/solution mix which results in revenues going down every year (quarter). Have a long term vision/strategy that is built around the factors described in the book "Good to Great" by Jim Collins and execute on that with a core management team that stays in place for 5 to 10 years.

    Former Employee - Contract Recruiter in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Contract Recruiter in New York, NY

    I worked at IBM as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Work life balance with great compensation. Solid technical tools to get the job done. They hire solid talent so you grow your career along with being super productive with shared business goals.

    Cons

    Can be variable in recruitment space as projects vary in closure. Part of any recruitment company in terms of being adaptive. Overall, great experience during my couple of years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None.
