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

    Pros

    If you love exceptionally great technology you may get the change to work with it if you work in IBM.
    Great technological legacy: just take the mainframe over 48 years old and still going strong
    Continuous investment in technological innovation
    Nurturer of Unix in general AIX and Linux
    Great CPU tech: Power and System p or Power 7 in new Power System
    Great storage tech: DS8000 Series

    Cons

    5 years ago I would have give it 10 stars out of 5... my enthusiasm has been squashed since then by the cohort of so called "freezes": education freeze, Q4 spending freeze, travel freeze, beginning of Q1 freeze, end of Q2 freeze etc.

    Advice to Management

    We all know know even the largest businesses are struggling to keep relevant in this very fast moving world
    but there must be better ways to manage and grow a company than ONLY through cutting costs, and cater to share holders by driving up share value at all cost.
    I argue that this is a sure way to fail on the long term.
    I would quit applying one size fits all business strategy in China and Europe and the same time in Australia and US. One global strategy is probably easier to manage but the company is wasting valuable resources down this road.
    Adapt and be flexible and nimble learn from the start-up culture instead of over burdening and eventually choking and demoralizing valuable and highly skilled people with bureaucracy, over-regulation, ITIL, other overkill overboard management shackles etc. in the end rendering them ineffective and unproductive.
    Capitalize on own technology instead helping the competition to gain more market share.
    Really invest in people and empower them and motivate them and let them bring more legitimate and long term business.
