The company is building strong capability in futuristic products and services

Downers

Mammoth size of the organization and move from the traditional consulting services

You must be highly motivated and get a lot of things done on your own, there is a lot of freedom to explore, however it depends a lot on the individual to make the most out of it.

Good for starting consulting

4.0 of 5 stars

April 2015 | FORMER EMPLOYEE

Uppers

Good work life balance
Flexibility
Great for analytics and more techy consulting

Downers

Get lost in big company
Too rigid of a structure for promotion and project reviews
Hard to make an real impact

Comments

If you are looking for traditional management/strategy consulting, look elsewhere. However, if you want to get into analytics, cloud, mobile etc. they are really investing heavily and this space. They are trying to turn a giant ship, so time will tell if their late move into those areas succeed.

Challenging Company to work for

IBM is a gigantic company with an infinite amount of resources and opportunities at your fingertips. Great because you can connect with Nobel Prize winners, travel to the numerous client or philanthropic sites around the world, and be at the forefront of technology and innovative solutions for clients. Bad because you don't know where to start looking for information, get lost if you don't pro-actively manage your career, and get stuck with a lot of red tape (necessary in a large firm). However, I am extremely satisfied because I can literally create my own career, work independently when I want (the virtual work environment is fantastic for someone who also has a life outside of work!), and have the full support of highly intelligent and fun people that I work with.

BEing part of something my father was eons ago.

Downers

Bureaucracy and entrenchment. They need to learn that a report that was good enough 10 years ago isn't now. With the programmers we have here, you think they cld get someone to write a new script. Or even take suggestions on changing it.

Comments

I enjoy my work. However a lot of frustration with the bureaucracy
