Approves of CEO

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.

    Pros

    Good people still there. Has great market and product visibility.

    Cons

    Lack of stability. Recent layoffs have really hurt the business - not sure of the future. Focus is on short term results only. No looking to the future.
