    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    You don't need much experience. Lack of certifications in any product /technology was never an issue. Great company for recent grads with no experience.

    Cons

    Certain IBM positions entail working long exhausting hours. Very little training if any. In my opinion, after the company requested and received US bailout money, the number of US positions that were lost to India increased.

    Advice to Management

    Some managers are great, some are not. My advice to Mgt is to learn from the managers that command respect. Poor Managers find it hard to be loyal to US Support, but those are the people you manage and should care about. Emerging markets should be secondary.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Can move cross-functionally and cross business unit easily.

    Cons

    No longer focused on the employee as the primary asset -- only the market. Offshoring is key.

    Advice to Management

    The only thing left is to be a good manager, take the time to speak candidly with your staff and help them to exit gracefully.
