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

    Pros

    Plenty of internal opportunity to develop a career and try new things
    Opportunity to move abroad if you have the right skills

    Cons

    Process bound - e.g. three levels of approval required to travel to a meeting
    Doesn't value it's employees
    Employees paying the price for CEO/Chairman's unrealistic commitments to Wall Street
    Too many good people leaving which is impacting negatively on the quality of service provided to the customer
    Process bound - e.g. it is more important to move revenue between departments than it is to generate new revenue
    Remuneration package constantly being eroded
    You are encouraged to work from home but dis-incentivised to do so
    Did I mention the fact that IBM are process bound?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can, for a while, increase profits by cutting costs but you cannot grow market share and revenue organically without investing in your employees. Sooner or later the customer gets pissed off with a poor level of service.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Nice people. You could work here many years. Easy place to work.

    Cons

    Money is marginal. Potential for advancement and development is poor. If you are junior consultant or graduate Accenture is a much better choice. The internal processes are a complete basket case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be leaders first and managers second. Fix the internal processes sms overhead.
