    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at IBM for more than 2 years

    Pros

    Great support structures and opportunities to evolve within the company. Numerous ways to get involved outside of the company through give-back opportunities (in schools, other companies...). Chance to explore new interests and discover new tech daily.

    Cons

    A lot of red tape when it comes to changing processes. IBM gets ownership of developed ideas when you work for them.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify red tape, more money to support as they are getting battered. More communication with dev teams and cloud teams.
