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

    Pros

    Great to be a shareholder. Good on resume. Great training. Smart people.

    Cons

    People are afraid to leave, because IBM makes them think they are giving up something special. So, the best people are leaving and the average ones are staying. IBM used to have a strong culture and it's no more. Everything is moving off shore and even they are less happy than they used to be. First line managers, directors, and even VPs have zero empowerment. Quotas have no basis in reality. Less than 60% of sales are making their numbers. GBS is a joke - they have no business in core consulting, and can no longer compete in commodity offshore model. It's really just the way it is - all is forsaken for shareholder returns. I know 1000s of people there and I can only think of 1 or 2 who are happy - literally.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the promises to the street and returns to shareholders. It's your fiduciary responsibility as an officer, and it's all you'll have at the end of the day.
