I worked at IBM full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Huge Software Portfolio, Terrific Training and Relationship Building Opportunity access to clients with IBM name recognition and ability to learn Internally from highly talented professionals

Cons

Massive Internal conflict between well entrenched highly toxic organizations and agendas, Lack of understanding line of business domains, Very difficult to navigate thru complex process laden self service systems, Very difficult for customers to do business with IBM, and Very difficult for sales people dealing with internal organizations and personalities to help clients

Advice to Management

Break up IBM into smaller innovative firms that drive innovation with agility and speed of a start up mindset

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    This is an innovative, ethical company with a long history that I was proud to work for. They clearly see where their profits lie and move to leverage those performing products in the market. Conversely, unprofitable products are cut. Great benefits with large salary ranges. Working from home was wonderful and perfect for my situation

    Cons

    Dealing with what I call the corporate "hoo haw," the processes for getting some goals accomplished are sometimes monumental. I found that by building my network, I could many times work around these roadblocks and achieve the end goal.
