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

Pros

Structured organisation constantly reviewed, sideways movement nearly always possible for career direction change, scope for travel, expert roles, blue chip

Cons

Very formal review processes can seem over the top, high rewards difficult to get outside Sales and top echelons of management

Advice to Management

Focus on profit not on sales revenue

    Pros

    This is a real business school, young people, good atmosphere, very open and international, focused on training

    Cons

    Tiring weeks because of the transport from city center, more than 1 hour per day in exhausting transports, nothing is for free in the campus, we have all but it is quite expensive

    Advice to Management

    Internal network is the key for success in sales opportunities and to promote the work of the teams in the company.

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

    Pros

    If you want to work together with people from different nations, this is the place for it. IBM is a leading company in technology and it's good to work for one of the best companies in the world.

    Cons

    Sometimes the big size of the company is advantageous, but sometimes you can feel that you're only a really small part of it and it's rather difficult to differentiate yourself.
