No opinion of CEO

I worked at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Global brand name recognition in Technology.

Cons

Pay is not competitive, heavily bureucratic company structure, too many management layers, not quite a meritocracy. Performance assessments are geared towards appearing to find "fault" rather than growth opportunities. Legend has it that

Advice to Management

Align talent with projects that utilize their core competencies. Turnover is high due to dissatisfaction with nature of project challenge and fuzzy career advancement.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Family friendly so wonderful for anyone who needs flexibility due to kids, etc, lots of work from home options. Great place to work if you are looking for work life balance and decent amount of job stability

    Cons

    Very tight financial controls. Necessary to a certain extent given the size of the company but need to find a better happy medium and let lower level managers manage their budgets and make decisions

    Advice to Management

    Hold managers and execs truly accountable for their finances so that you can bring management of budgets down to a lower level
