    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Big company with a great customer base and world wide name recognition. i.e. Good for the resume.

    Cons

    Very little ability to adapt new and needed practices associated with acquisitions. Very high pressure on sales side and definitely a "good ole boys club" component. Internal competition between various groups and political jockeying means that the customer gets whats best for the biggest player at IBM, not whats best for the customer.

    Advice to Management

    Way too much to list here. The entire company needs to be overhauled from the inside out... much like our government.

    "There is no sense of teamwork in the company culture. IBM stands for "I'm By Myself""

    Pros

    Smart, hard working colleagues that will challenge you to measure up to high performance standards. Lot of opportunity to learn while on the job.

    Cons

    Management only cares about quarterly results. Lots of layoffs in US. Most of the opportunity is in India and other countries. Very little formal training and most education is done on your time nights and weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Never will be a world class company until you change the culture and get IBMers to work as a team.
