    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large firm with numerous career tracks within and between business units. One has to own his or her career at IBM, it's a very big place and critical to keep focus on what one is trying to achieve.

    Cons

    IBM is a public firm, the quarterly wall street demands require heightened focus on reporting and financial data.

    Advice to Management

    Continue cultivating the type of leaders Ginni is grooming. The old management mentality should become obsolete and those managers as well.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good name recognition known around the world.

    Cons

    Poorly managed from the top down. Employees are commodities and not valued.

    Time to clean house. Focus on your employees and not management bonuses.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits, good compensation overall.

    Cons

    Too many reorganizations. How many times per year can a company change directions? It seemed that there were large layoffs, almost every quarter.

    Advice to Management

    You can't solve every problem with technology. As consultants, we cannot lose sight of the business problems we're trying to solve for customers, as they are not always solved by throwing more technology at it. Instead of looking at it like, "I have this software, how can I sell it to ABC company?", look at it this way, "How can I help ABC company, and what would be the solution to their problems?"

    Pros

    You can change your job without changing the Company! There are so many work opportunities in IBM on the technology field that could be use for a work refresh.

    Cons

    Departments don't have the ability to compensate employees based on their job duties in the market field, without first applying the overall compensation program which is not good.
