    I worked at IBM part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Decent pay
    Group I was in had flexible hours
    Good management/supervision, but it is very dependent on who your supervisor is

    Honestly as part time this was great, it can be good to get some experience in your area. However, I don't see it as being the fulfilling longstanding career that used to be attached with the IBM name.

    Cons

    Big place means a lot of bureaucracy
    Suggestions often not implemented
    Little upward mobility right now

    Everyone is pretty stuck in their ways. The processes put in place can be super frustrating, and there are so many different groups that must work together to push a product out, yet nobody knows more than just what their group does. This makes communication difficult at times, slowing pushing out a product, which leads to everyone higher in the development chain putting unnecessary pressure on those lower in the chain.

    Advice to Management

    Familiarize everyone with the entire process they will be dealing with. Devs should at least understand what happens during the legal process, and the point. Similarly, legal should understand the process the dev goes through - which has a lot more paperwork than it is "just programming."

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

    Pros

    The people: IBMers are smart, passionate, collaborative, committed and driven to deliver value to our clients, the company and each other

    The work: Meaningful in impact, global in scale/local in design, partnering with clients to solve some of the world's most challenging problems, always an exciting hill to climb...you will be stretched!

    The environment: built on a foundation of values, belief in work-life flexibility, inherent learning culture, collaborative

    Cons

    Change and reinvention is a constant in our industry, with our clients and in our company; if you enjoy status quo or a great deal of certainty, IBM would be a difficult environment for you to operate in

    IBM is a large company. If you are not a self starter and path finder dedicated to your personal expertise and impact, it will be challenging for you to succeed.

    If you prefer to be highly entrepreneurial, your skills will be valued, but you will need to embrace process and procedure governance to work within.

    Advice to Management

    Continue culture of feedback, advocacy and engagement

    Maintain an outside in view in all we do

    Simplify and accelerate wherever possible
