    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Big programs giving opportunities to learn
    Very sharp people, with skills not limited to tech'
    IF you have a network and a reputation, you can have a comfortable job

    Cons

    Slow moving
    Complacent
    Extremely difficult to get started: new hires are left on their own
    Success is generally achieved by stealing other people's efforts
    Bureaucracy and penny pinching drive us all insane.

    Advice to Management

    Stop bureaucratic micromanagement, be strategic. If you can't spend real money on salaries, make employees happy with lower cost gestures like giving them good computers and phones.
