    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The best place to learn emerging technology and get going with market/industry demand.

    Cons

    Compensation package. Not upto the industry standards. Most of which depends on the managers.

    Advice to Management

    Overall IBM is driven by processes that would be governed by managers. Few mangers still got to be aligned with company direction rather dictating own terms.
