No opinion of CEO

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

Pros

- good for graduates to get experience
- good technical resources/knowledge
- usually quick moves to different roles
- leaders/management usually promoted to senior roles

Cons

- lack of support for professionals, you are expected to move to management position, if you are good in your professional area
- generally lower salary vs competition for the same job
- general move to internally outsource the jobs w/ decreasing quality of work (there seem to be no internal metrics for that)

Advice to Management

Decide if you want to attract professional talent and pay for it, or keep just keep IBM as company of and for leaders.
