I have been working at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

Pros

Tech giant with massive resources and really talented people. You work on products that are touched by millions in mission critical areas. For such a big company, it feels very nimble. You can easily reach any employee worldwide through Sametime. It feels like a tight-knit environment, even thought you are 1 or hundreds of thousands. Every manager I have dealt with is awesome. Uber professionalism throughout.

Cons

It is a big company. It takes weeks to do some things that would be done in hours in a startup. I wish product development was more streamlined. That similar products were merged or shut down. And that products would not be saddled with every single possible feature.

Advice to Management

Every single manager I have dealt with is awesome. So keep picking good people.

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

    Pros

    Lots of freedom, smart colleagues, respectful managers, excellent work-life balance

    Cons

    IBM has lost it's balance when it comes to managing finances v. people. It seems now that the company is primarily driven to produce ever richer EPS, and seems to care little about employee development, career growth or morale.

    Many of the best people are leaving or looking.

    Advice to Management

    Rebalance priorities. Focus more on making customers happy, technical achievements, and developing your employees. Focus less on plans based on specific EPS growth.,
