    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Talented peers, strong company benefits, lots of opportunity

    Cons

    Lack of transparency, frenetic directional changes, lack of clear vision

    Advice to Management

    As IBM tries to evolve to become a first rate cloud player, stick to what the company is good at (solving complex problems for enterprise customers) rather than just chasing what made AWS and Microsoft great cloud offerings.

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Lots of long time employees that appreciate IBM. Pragmatism in daily dealings.

    Cons

    Lots of volatility in your job security. Yearly layoffs and MO of downsizing entire teams with no notice.

    Advice to Management

    Stop talking about co-location, its hurting our hiring and retention efforts
