Approves of CEO

I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Stable work environment, reputation of company, a focus on team work rather than cut throat consulting culture

Cons

Unless working at headquarters, in consulting role if you are billable, you could work for 20+ years and never get noticed or have many opportunities

Advice to Management

Happy with new CEO choice

    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.
