    Below market compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you need to get to the 2015 roadmap, you actually should lay people off, rather than having the top performers leave

    I worked at IBM as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    IBM is a really great place to work in terms of the quality of the work environment; IBM puts great emphasis on the employees or the 'IBMers'. There are also a great deal of resources and a vast amount of information available. It is definitely an interesting work experience. The company is doing very well; it is growing fast and focused in a market that is the aligned with the general direction of the technology industry as a whole.

    Cons

    The company is really big, and this may be a downside for some. The individual contributions of employees can never be really significant, even for senior developers. As with other large companies, there is a great deal of bureaucracy at IBM, and the long corporate ladder that stands in the path of career progression may not be very appealing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management at IBM seemed to be very efficient, and the only suggestion is a greater emphasis and focus on improving and making more efficient the current practices for software development and the various procedures and infrastructures in place that support this initiative as a whole.
