    Negative Outlook

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

    Pros

    Company is stable. It has a good articles to sell. Good reputation on working markets.

    Cons

    People will never take the responsibility about their own work. They are alway blaming someone else. In case you need something to be handled quickly, it must be approved on top level first, which is from Finland organization point of view - Top level Finland -> top level Nordic -> top level Europe -> top level US. And based on that nothing happens on time.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and start living in today's world and not in 50's.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people to work with and a wide range of opportunities in different areas. Being a truly global MNC, one gets the opportunity to work in different roles , deal with diverse technologies, various clients from different industries. One also gets the opportunity of choosing a career track like IT Architect, Sales and Business Development, Project management etc as per own career goals and ambitions.

    Cons

    The size of the company makes decision making slow in certain areas and sometimes the thrust on too much process driven approach leads to in-pragmatic solutions

    Advice to Management

    Make some of the processes leaner to allow us become more agile and efficient.
