Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Travel discounts for hotels and rental cars.

Cons

You are truly a number - your individual accomplishments and contributions mean nothing. IBM is all talk when it comes to values.

Advice to Management

If you want to have a successful consulting practice, consider investing in the product you are offering - your PEOPLE.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    a good work environment, with flexibility, comprehensive healthcare benefits and good retirement benefits. it's a good place to work for people who have family.

    Cons

    pay is ok, i would say average. not a lot of young people and a lot of projects have been on the trend of outsourcing to asia or other parts of the world.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Open environment with lots of free flowing ideas
    - Casual and meritocratic atmosphere
    - Ability to help define project

    Cons

    - Heavily dependent on mentors and their willingness to be engaged
    - Odd structure for MBAs as tech interns seem to get lots of opportunities for interviews but not MBAs

    Advice to Management

    Try to have business mentors who are directly responsible some deliverable
