    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The IBM legacy which is in serious danger of becoming only a distant memory. This company has done great things in the past but has not learned to adapt to the market they seek to penetrate.

    Cons

    Dinosaur! IBM will continue to lose market and relevance in all things they do until they get competent leadership and that flows down to competent middle management. Process seems to be more important than results. As a salesperson with a quota a was measured more on my ability to produce reports than on my sales numbers

    Advice to Management

    15+ quarters missed revenue and senior management is getting bonus payouts? Need to drain the swamp

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Everyone knows IBM so it's good to have on your resume. The transition to a cloud and analytics company is positive. Market presence.

    Cons

    Annual layoffs, management heavy, many poorly trained managers, annual movement of managers that bring little value is hurting the company and client/partner relationships.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate existing talent. Less movement of employees might help to expose deadbeats, at all levels. Less "blue washing" of acquisition companies would help IBM be a more progressive company.

    Pros

    Providing full of facilities for employee to learn about leadership and technologies

    Cons

    too focus on short term goal rather than long term goal

    Advice to Management

    Revisit 1-3-9 practice for practical use cases.
