    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Globally recognized brand, flexible working hours, opportunity to participate in different roles and work with large customers, networking

    Cons

    IBM is destroying geeky high tech environment and instead is replacing with endless chains of management. I’ve seen many enthusiastic highly skilled technical talents leaving IBM just because of use of outdated and old technologies and lack of technological challenges. I don’t feel like I am working in world leading innovative IT Company anymore. The systems I have worked on and have seen developed by IBM looked very outdated, really can’t understand how customers are paying large amount of money and getting rubbish systems. And the sad part is the procedures and bureaucracy has killed all the motivation to make something better. And even if you are willing to change surely nobody will recognize that.

    Products are not cutting edge technology anymore and stuck in 90-ties.
    No freedom for innovations
    Employees are rated not by their talent and dedication but how they follow the procedures
    Bureaucracy is destroying from inside out.
    If things will continue to progress in same direction surely IBM will start feeling deficit of innovative people
    If you speak in binary then you should seek for more flexible and innovative company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value real professional, give freedom to innovate, bring back talents
