    Former Employee - Client Manager (Sales) in Atlanta, GA

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Diverse Career Opportunities& many of them
    -Reputable company, enormous portfolio
    -OK pay, OK benefits, Fantastic Flexibility
    -Acquiring companies constantly

    Cons

    -Management controls you like puppets. You do not necessarily own your own internal path
    -Reputable yes, but that reputation isn't always good or improving
    -OK pay, OK benefits, Flexibility fading
    -Enormous challenge in IBM being a sum of its parts. Collective deal handling difficult.
    -Team not really there. Everyone paid on their own part - difficult to control
    -LOTS of uncertainty. More people leaving or forced to leave than coming
    -Culture leaves much to be desired

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While it used to be that you had to earn your stripes to earn a role at IBM, now, go start at IBM, stay for 3 years and leave.

    Former Employee - Advisory Hardware Engineer
    Former Employee - Advisory Hardware Engineer

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

    Pros

    Mostly excellent people, and great traditions of high product quality and high standards. Good work/life balance policies, strong diversity programs

    Cons

    Current management is running the company totally to please Wall Street. The core principals of the company - especially the dedication to customers - is being sacrificed. Employee morale is AWFUL; almost everyone is angry, depressed, or has just given up. NOT a pleasant place to work at the moment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop breathing your own exhaust and look at what is really going on in the world. Saying your stuff is the best does not make it the best; talent and dedication do. If you don't continue to attract talented, enthusiastic employees, IBM will become an empty marketing shell when all the old timers are gone.
