    Current Employee - Intern in Markham, ON (Canada)
    Current Employee - Intern in Markham, ON (Canada)

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

    Pros

    - IBM is an established company
    - It has a huge and beautiful infrastructure
    - International offices with options to work in a lot of countries
    - Great people

    Cons

    - Slow work effort, it takes too much time to get anything done
    - Too collaboration dependent; you get stuck waiting on someone else too often
    - The work structure seems a bit old and stubborn to change
    - Too many older employees working for a technology company leads to many problems
    - Business model is old fashioned and also stubborn to change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continuously hire new graduates and keep moving them until they fit their role seamlessly. Don't manage a project, manage your team! They can handle managing the project, and in doing so will stay more connected and the work will get done faster. Meet someone new every day. You'll be surprised where you find the skill your looking for.

    Current Employee - Sales in Bangkok (Thailand)
    Current Employee - Sales in Bangkok (Thailand)

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

    Pros

    - Good luck to be IBM brand over 100 years with a bunch of customer base that can up selling for old customer
    - Good knowledge base/tools/training to enable skill for staff and market
    - Big team work to support complex requirement from customer
    - Good for new graduate people to work and learn IT knowledge

    Cons

    - Office culture not match with dynamic of IT market: too much elegant, Big team with low services mind between team, too much monitor/check point to delay sales cycle that effect direct to customer satisfaction
    - Work live balance is negative with choice to choose family or work
    - Old style to work office as base even staff is mobile user. Very low technology to work as remote Web conference to make job done. Keep call face to face meeting for whole team. Waste time for travel back and forth with traffic.
    - Not so good to work for dynamic/skill/initiative person because of current culture is not support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - To improve manager skill of people management. Need more mutual for manager level that too much personal mood driven
    - Make sure that all manager apply for open door practice without bias
    - Current customer was ignore to consider up-selling (Services, new solution offer)
    - HR just messenger and administrator
    - With above point, high turn over that outside new professional staff can not survive, culture will getting older with old team, old mind set, hard to find new initiative from new blood to win new market and keep loosing customer.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
