    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits, patent opportunities, travel opportunities, training opportunities, the opportunity to work in one of the pioneers of the technology industry.

    Cons

    Silo mentality, very hostile towards "outsiders" that come in later in their career, extremely political to the actual detriment of the shareholders.

    Advice to Management

    Take good corprate governance to heart. You have executives that put their personal gain before the company's. I have documentation to substantiate it.

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

    Pros

    Professional company with a long history and skilled employees. IBM provided decent benefits for people that hired on 5+ years ago. IBM deals in many different software/hardware areas and has great research groups.

    Cons

    The jobs are leaving the US to India and China. I left because the only jobs I could get was to manage development projects by developers in India. It is not rewarding to work with people that don't have the same drive and interest to innovate.
