I worked at IBM full-time for 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 ManagementAdvice

Focus on profit not on sales revenue

    I worked at IBM as an intern for 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 ManagementAdvice

    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 for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great attitude, great workplace atmosphere, employers are respected. The balance work-life is good, weekend work happens seldom and it is appreciated and recompensed. Continuous education is encouraged.

    Cons

    It is a big company and it is difficult to advance in your career or to change positions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think it would be ideal if there were more one on one meetings with the senior management to take into consideration employers' opinions.
