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

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