    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative atmosphere, smart people, investment in basic science and research, proactive opportunity creation and advancement for women, phenomenal technologies. highest integrity and ethics. lots of opportunities to move within the company. Watson strategy will propel the company to next level. Top executives (VP level and above) are smart and excellent at what they do.

    Cons

    processes designed for the last decade prevent company from moving fast enough to compete with new threats. Not-invented-here syndrome. Poor middle management.

    Advice to Management

    Hire smart people from outside to shake up middle management which likes to stick to processes that give them job security. 20th century was for the "BIG" - economy of scale, business models that rewarded the power of many, recognize that 21st century is the century of "nano" - create nano innovation incubators within IBM
