    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Competitive salary and outstanding benefits.

    Cons

    Some groups are protective of sharing information within their team in order to help secure their jobs. There is much overhead when it comes to being 'IBM compliant' as an employee. Don't expect to get even the simplest things done quickly. Also hard to find good managers that back up and advance their people.

    Advice to Management

    Not enough contact with lower management to identify the impacts that certain decisions have on the business and their people. Too much is done from the '30,000 foot' level.

    This company is on the leading edge of both technology and diversity inclusion. The opportunities I have working in a company that has everything are amazing. IBM is demanding and fast pased, but still allows plenty of space and flexibility to take care of myself and family.

    Cons

    Challenging to navigate across different business units and stay in strategic areas of the business.
