Approves of CEO

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

Pros

Good life-style balance, work at home flexibility, good salary

Cons

A bit process heavy
No desktops for developers

Advice to Management

Don't allow acquisitions to continue on their own for too long after acquisition. Better to learn the IBM process sooner than later.

    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Outstanding people - exceptional integrity. For people who have an opportunity to work for IBM, it remains one of the premier enterprises on the planet

    Cons

    I don't have any real cons. With all of the acquisitions in the past 10 years, more than half the workforce has been with IBM 5 or less years. The culture is not what it was, but I think this is probably true for most companies

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the focus on growing profitiability. Without profit, nothing else is possible
