I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Very smart and friendly people. You feel like working only with high level specialists or first class experts. Many opportunities to meet and/or talk with people from other lines of business or geographical areas. Many opportunities for professional development.

Cons

Sometimes the process of starting a new initiative can be too slow.

Advice to Management

Bring upper level of management closer down to people.

    Pros

    Access to the best of the best, and all with the name of IBM on your resume. IBM has their fingers in almost every aspect of life, and working for this company opens up opportunities beyond those available with other employers.

    Cons

    You have to learn to roll with the punches. Globalization and cost factoring are an every day reality that even IBM is susceptible to. If you're expecting to get a good raise or a fair bonus, then think again, because that won't happen here. Your real compensation is working on the projects and with the people, and using that to further your carreer.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize your top talent by what they do, not just who they are. Reward your rank-and-file people appropriately, and remember that the size of the reward is sometimes much more significant than the fact that they're getting one in the first place.


  2. "System Analyst"

    One of the biggest Companies in the world. It gives you a good status in front of IT community.

    Depending on the project/account, specially those with Global Services, you won't get too much visibility inside the Company.

    To perform feedback about our performance in a periocal basis in order to allow us to improve our skills and the career as well.
