I worked at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Very smart and capable peers. Work is typically challenging when you find the right gig. Getting exposed to different companies and industries is rewarding.

Cons

Very Utilization driven. As long as you know the rules, you should be OK. No training (OJT), systems needed to get your work done typically have to be "baked into the deal" with the customer. Travel (Mo-Fr, Typically 100%), IBM used to be "Ive been moved" .. now its more like "I'm by myself"

Advice to Management

Touch base with employees often. Out of sight does not need to mean out of mind.

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

    Pros

    IBM is not an easy place to work but Im not looking for that and if you are then its not for you. Its hard work, everyday. Challenging. Big company clients with big real world problems. If you want a challenge, want to work with some of the brightest minds, and shape the future of business then IBM is right for you.

    Cons

    Its not easy to get promoted from within. Having done it myself though I can say its at least possible.

    Advice to Management

    Change the balance towards promoting from within those with the skills clients need most. Accelerate promotions as needed to retain the best talent.


  2. "Working OK"
