    Pros

    IBM still provides opportunities to move around and learn new things.

    Cons

    I worked at IBM in marketing for 22 years. It is no longer the company I joined. Layoffs are rampant with 1 month severance provided despite your years of service. Check out the article on ProPublica about age discrimination and the subsequent lawsuits.

    Clean house and reclaim your moral compass.

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

    Pros

    Smart people, well recognized brand name, multiple office locations, wide network, well-respected company, respectful culture, professional demeanor

    Cons

    can feel old-school, hard to find the right resources/ information/ people when needed because of how big the organization is without an organized method of finding resources, hard to learn about the many products of IBM because information is scattered across so many places

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you don't give a manager more reports than they can handle. When they get to the point where their relationships are just transactional with their employees and they aren't answering emails within 1-2 days (or at all) and aren't getting their employees feedback they need in a timely manner for them to progress, that manager is handling too many reports and is no longer effective as a manager
