I worked at IBM part-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I worked and IBM research and it was a place for great minds to meet. The environment was conducive to challenging yourself and to excel at whatever you did. The possibilities were limitless.

Cons

IBM is a large company and no mater what you did it did not seem to impact the company much.

Advice to Management

Spinning of groups to work as almost a separate business unit gave the groups a lot of autonomy and a sense of accomplishment when success metrics were setup just for that group.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great history in development of hardware and software that forms a strong foundation for the company.

    Cons

    Difficulties integrating the vast number of software solutions they have acquired through various company purchases, compounded by a lack of qualified resources (both internal & external) to stand up those solutions in their customers increasingly complex environments.

    Advice to Management

    Step up investment & training in services area. Improve "Blue Wash" processes.

    Pros

    The depth and breadth of IBM skill is impressive. Everywhere you turn there is someone willing to help and make you better at your career. In IGS, you have the opportunity to work in many different industries and on smaller project teams.

    Cons

    IBM is huge and can be overwhelming at times. That said, they do a great job of making you feel part of the team.
