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

    Pros

    Lots of things to learn because IBM sells everything
    Nice people
    International exposure if that's what you want

    Cons

    Service delivery is a challenge
    Too political
    Processes around everything
    Mid-level management does not have the authority they used to have
    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

    Doesn't Recommend

    Current Employee - Solution Manager in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Flexible working - nobody keeping a check on you - getting good quality work done is the priority
    A culture of generally helpful people with a positive team ethic

    Cons

    Extremely low salary with managers powerless to raise it (make sure you get a healthy starting salary)
    Lack of a sense of team, with full time remote working the norm, and meetings rare and focussed, with little time for informal interactions
    Some very poor managers
    Unnecessary cost-cutting measures at all times (from shoddy phones to cumbersome processes to get work-related travel approved, etc)
    Top-down communications with an occasional cursory "forum" with management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start to think of employee morale as a valuable asset rather than a superfluous luxuary that can be easily cut.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
