    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    the brand makes it easy to get meetings and looks good on your resume. I made a lot of money.

    Cons

    It's a declining company with a layoff culture. Weak CEO. Lost the cloud war. They claim it's a performance culture. Could not be further from the truth. The place sucks the soul out of you.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of Gini. Intimidation is no way to get the best out of people.

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    The best reasons to work here is that you are the tip of the spear when in comes to Information Security.

    Cons

    A work/life balance as with the traveling and administrative work it is a 7 days per week, which no time to make appointments as you do not know where you will be from week to week.

    Advice to Management

    Team building would be my number one goal, as well as ensuring the same message is put out. The Administrative side will not help you and send you in numerous directions costing time and money.

  8. Since outsourced to IBM in 2013, my experience has been positive

    Develop more people-skills in 1st-line Managers. Improve Intranet search capabilities so newbies can find information faster (see google). Develop people skills in 1st line managers/SDMs.

    I worked at IBM

    Pros

    Project work was very rewarding and I was able to work with many outstanding and smart people during my 8 1/2 years at IBM GBS some of whom remain friends today. With a handful of exceptions, our project managers were nothing short of magicians in the way they balanced customer satisfaction, profitability, and teamwork. They were often handed projects that were D.O.A. and they revived them with some CPR and hard work...

    Cons

    Project discipline and methodology changed from project to project because the fixed price deals and their delivery dates being signed by IBM sales were often impossible to deliver successfully without many project change requests and schedule slippages. Additionally, IBM sales teams got paid on the PROJECTED profitability of the deals UP FRONT and their input and clarifications frequently disappeared after the deal...

    Advice to Management

    Pay sales on profitability of the completed project. Involve consultants earlier in the sales process who will also be working on the project. Assign blue pages managers for the long run so that they get to know their assignees. I had 13 different blue pages managers in 8 1/2 years. Two of them were my blue pages manager for two years each! That's a lot of revolving doors of management to overcome in order to get...
