    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    I have some interesting projects and have enjoyed traveling with my work.

    Cons

    Unethical practices by executives. Employees are at risk of age discrimination.

    Advice to Management

    Find your "Why". A truly successful company needs more than a single-minded focus on revenue generation. Having a successful company goes beyond competitive differentiators and catchy corporate mission statements. It takes passion, and commitment that resonates throughout your organization. IBM is lacking in knowing their "Why".

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 4 years

    Pros

    Learning possibilities are endless, internal networking was phenomenal, and accessibility to anyone at any level was unlike any other organization I had worked for previously.

    Cons

    A constant , nervous feeling that there was no ground beneath your feet due to the constant disruptions, transformations, and restructuring. The move from a being a largely telecommuting company back to bricks and mortar is one such painful example where lives were disrupted. I wasn't around for it, but I lived through other disruptions. The move back to offices must have been horrific for many. While at IBM, many were...

    Advice to Management

    While welcoming change is for the most part good, realize that a state of total constant change is completely counter productive for both the employees and customers.

    I have been working at IBM full-time

    Pros

    Great open leadership team at least in my corner of the company. I've been able to gather a top notch team of skilled professionals delivering service to our end customers.

    Cons

    Idiotic decisions being made at HQ removing resources without even a chance to prepare for reduction.

    Advice to Management

    Quit trying to fine tune with a hatched instead of a scalpel. Seek and listen to input from lower level leaders and workers.

    Current Employee - Strategist in Orlando, FL
    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    A very large portfolio of software products and the potential to provide an end to end platform to help companies know and sell to their customers.

    Cons

    A culture that sells speeds and feeds/features and benefits as opposed to providing solutions. A company focusing on short-term gains to the exclusion of ensuring its future.

    Advice to Management

    Figure out what you want to succeed at and head towards it come hell or high water. March to one mission statement and Lincoln quoting scripture said it best, "A house divided against itself cannot stand." Software, services, Watson, should think "IBM first" by default rather than trying to sell your services, software or hardware and the rest of IBM be damned.

      I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Working for such a large company allows you to meet so many other talented people in the industry.

      Cons

      Because the company is so large and global it takes a very long time for tasks to be completed. Communication has room for improvement and processes change frequently.

      Advice to Management

      Communicate openly to employees without so many secrets.
