I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

- Good luck to be IBM brand over 100 years with a bunch of customer base that can up selling for old customer
- Good knowledge base/tools/training to enable skill for staff and market
- Big team work to support complex requirement from customer
- Good for new graduate people to work and learn IT knowledge

Cons

- Office culture not match with dynamic of IT market: too much elegant, Big team with low services mind between team, too much monitor/check point to delay sales cycle that effect direct to customer satisfaction
- Work live balance is negative with choice to choose family or work
- Old style to work office as base even staff is mobile user. Very low technology to work as remote Web conference to make job done. Keep call face to face meeting for whole team. Waste time for travel back and forth with traffic.
- Not so good to work for dynamic/skill/initiative person because of current culture is not support

Advice to Management

- To improve manager skill of people management. Need more mutual for manager level that too much personal mood driven
- Make sure that all manager apply for open door practice without bias
- Current customer was ignore to consider up-selling (Services, new solution offer)
- HR just messenger and administrator
- With above point, high turn over that outside new professional staff can not survive, culture will getting older with old team, old mind set, hard to find new initiative from new blood to win new market and keep loosing customer.
