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

    Former Employee - Sales Manager

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Profitable company
    Sets long term strategy that delivers profitable value
    Strategy is usually dead on, very few mis-steps from business execution
    Shedding low-value, low margin businesses, investing in high value, high profit segments

    Cons

    Big company - sometimes difficult to work thru various layers of mgmt. (But if you have the right mentor, an IBM'r can help you figure out the best path)
    If you don't stay close to the customer's viewpoint, can become part of the bottleneck problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing a great job on strategy and direction, so IBM'rs can go execute and deliver results for our customers and shareholders.
