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

Pros

Structured organisation constantly reviewed, sideways movement nearly always possible for career direction change, scope for travel, expert roles, blue chip

Cons

Very formal review processes can seem over the top, high rewards difficult to get outside Sales and top echelons of management

Advice to Management

Focus on profit not on sales revenue

    I worked at IBM as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    This is a real business school, young people, good atmosphere, very open and international, focused on training

    Cons

    Tiring weeks because of the transport from city center, more than 1 hour per day in exhausting transports, nothing is for free in the campus, we have all but it is quite expensive

    Advice to Management

    Internal network is the key for success in sales opportunities and to promote the work of the teams in the company.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    IBM treats their employees well in most cases. Working here you have access to tons of great resources and the access to really intelligent people.

    Cons

    Felt a little like a worker bee that was expendable. Working as a billable consultant was a little stressful considering you were supposed to always be billing. Do you other work on your time. Many meetings and even more paperwork. Not to mention silly certifications on ethics that were a complete waste of time.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on the employee and treat them as a person. Not a drone.
