Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

At the time I worked for them, they allowed telecommuting, they no longer do that.

Cons

They have done too much outsourcing and become way to large and are no longer dynamic, trying to get anything done is almost impossible. Trying to get training, any suggestions to the right folks, is just not a possibility. It is unfortunate as this used to be a bleeding edge company and now lives off of its former reputation.

Advice to Management

You have lost your edge as a company, you need to retool
