Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Chicago, IL (US)

I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Plenty of opportunities to gain skills and grow a great career.
Internal access to lots of resources and a decent mentorship program provide options for personal development.

Cons

Sometimes the size of the corp can be daunting.
Need lot of self motivation to get anything accomplished.
For essentially an IT organization the internal help desk is strictly a self service model.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Encourage finding a buddy or make sure your first line managers are well training in the soft skills

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

    Pros

    IBM has excellent processes, solid management and excellent work-life balance for employees. IBM has good focus on employees development and offers great training opportunities for employees, if they choose to take them up. As always, career development is up to you, so more work you put in, better results you will get at IBM.

    Cons

    Processes can mean slower response time sometimes, especially working across international boundaries. It's hard to avoid this for a large corporation, especially since each geography has its own operating company (due to legal and regulatory requirements).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the focus as you have on profit growth - continue to acquire high-margin / high- potential start-ups and IBM will continue to dominate the marketplace.
