Pros

Great place to work if you are interested in technology and prefer to work on products/projects that have a big impact on the world. Smart people. Good leadership development programs for recognized talent.

Cons

Permission based, needs multiple layers of approvals for decisions. Large, so you could get lost if you don't have the right mentors, managers and colleagues. Less perks.

Advice to Management

Reduce process overhead

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    "Can do" attitude of teaming. If you desire to work for a large corporation, learn formal processes (sometimes more than you like) and frameworks you can take wherever your career path takes you, IBM will definitely give you this structure. It is impressive how big the company is and yet how focused it is in recent years on growth and innovation. They invest lots into R&D and thought leadership.

    Cons

    Maybe not the highest salaries. If you do not want structure, look elsewhere.


  2. "Excellent company to work for"
