If you can get around the "bigness" of IBM, and focus on project and local teams, it is very manageable.

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

Pros

The positive about the size is that there are resources for just about anything, and there are compatible groups with which to align.

Cons

The downside of the size is that there is constant change in management, which sometimes contributes to needing to move on to continue to grow.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Integrate the value of long-term focus into the measurement system; train managers to support IDPs better (more consistently, more frequently than annually), and stop "weathering" recessions and lead the world in generating a 21st century economy that benefits all.
