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

    Pros

    The company still has some of the best benefits in the industry. Opportunities still exist and it is what you make of them.

    Cons

    Culture has been in decline for the past decade. No improvements in the culture can bee seen on the horizon as the company continues to shift jobs to India. Damage has been done in India with layoff's in a country where they are trying to shift jobs too. They cannot hire enough skilled people and those that they do have, leave for better paid jobs.

    Advice to Management

    Unfortunately the company is so large as a multinational company, it is having a difficult time realizing what it could be if it where a global company. For instance, its Cloud division is segmented and one part has no idea what they other part is doing. It has no management of a complete end-to-end service in Cloud. So it suffers in implementations. No one is watching the end-to-end and upper management continues to operate as if it were 5 years ago. IBM attempts at Agile miss the mark as no one is watching how it fits into the big picture. How can it when it operates as a multinational company instead of a global one?

    I worked at IBM (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    IBM provided me over the last 25 years great opportunities to excell. Their Sales School experience is legendary. Scope to move into different divisions of the company.

    Cons

    Senior Executives have totally lost touch with the workers. Morale is all time low and work load excessive due to the mass lay offs.

    Advice to Management

    Bring back the core values and pay appropriately to the workedrs that actually deliver the results. Execs earn far too much for what they do.
