Doesn't Recommend
Neutral Outlook
No opinion of CEO

I worked at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Big company and leading brand in the field.

Cons

Completely number-driven management, often unable to look beyond the current quarter. Lower and middle management fairly distached from actual work done by their employees.

Advice to Management

Engage more with the day to day work of employees to get the ability to qualify the numbers reported.
