    I have been working at IBM for more than a year

    Pros

    I was in the Smyrna office and had a great time- I was involved in several projects and was able to network all around the company. I grew tremendously in the brief 11 week internship and could not see myself anywhere else.

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Ability to make own schedule, excellent training, engaged coworkers.

    Cons

    Dysfunctional structure, complicated, complete lack of cohesion between departments and products - everyone has different goals, no ones goals are aligned, everyone out for themselves with little thought of putting the best package forward to the clients. It's a total cluster.

    Advice to Management

    Commit to your growth areas instead of trying to push legacy and growth markets simultaneously, and commit to being on the forefront of IT again instead of copying the roadmaps of the other big players.
