    I worked at IBM

    Pros

    IBM once was a powerhouse in all aspects of corporate culture, respect for the individual, job growth, security, stability and professionalism. Not the staid, blue suit mentality, but a company that is constantly reinventing itself.

    Cons

    Outsourcing has eroded the business and damaged the image.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the philosphies that made people proud to be an IBMer. Reward loyalty and do not tolerate mediocrity.
