    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Work on big projects, good training lots of travel opportunities. Great technology. Incredible brand value. Good access to industry experts.

    Cons

    IBM's size make it hard to grow which stresses employees. They used to allow people to work remotely, as that changed they are losing many of their best talent especially in marketing.

    Advice to Management

    Allow skilled people to contribute instead of making job cookie cutter and forcing one size fits all approach.

    I worked at IBM (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    IBM has a heritage of being a technology leader and developing many amazing products. In addition, IBM has traditionally been very supportive of its employees.

    Cons

    Too much middle management - top leadership has no concept of reality due to being insulated by a middle management team that only answers to "Yes". The result is unrealistic goals for the Sales Teams as well as dated products.

    This once great company is in the midst of another transition -- only time will tell whether or not it will return to its once former self (in terms of ethics and dedication to its employees).

    Advice to Management

    Stop catering to Wall Street, focus on what made you great -- people and products. With this magic formula, the potential positive results will in the end, make Wall Street happy.

  3. "Software Client Leader (SCL)"

    I worked at IBM full-time

    Pros

    Vast portfolio of products. Great pool of resources to tap for expertise.

    Cons

    Management - totally driven by transaction oriented business versus focusing on building long lasting client relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people - stop making constant changes every 6 months. Clients have little confidence in their Sales Team being long lasting.
