I have got offer from IBM Cloud as Sr staff software engineer. I have been getting calls from AWS and also MSFT Azure. If I don’t mind salary, how will be working at IBM cloud vs AWS and MSFT for career and learning perspective?

      When other IBM units refuse to use IBM cloud because of reliability issues you know something is fishy here. I think Op is trolling

      Back when I was at IBM people were laughing about our offering, from Soft Layer to IBM Cloud, everything is subpar and I wouldn't use it if it was for free. It's unreliable as hell and yeah we made some money by screwing customers over because we were a "technology company". No way in hell I'd join a sinking ship like this 👋🏼

    I've never heard of people using cloud services from IBM... not sure how matured they are in terms of building services for cloud... I would go for AWS or Microsoft anyday

      IBM sells their cloud mainly because of watson

    LOL

    Agree with fellow Amazonian that you are not smart enough to get in. You are equating the product with the company for starters.

    You are better off staying in old school IBM

      Linus Torvalds during early 2000 worked for Transmeta instead of Intel/AMD. Transmeta ultimately failed. Does that mean he was not smart enough? Your logic is flawed.

      AWS dominates all markets. Even in China they are big despite alibaba doing a lot

    When it comes to job only money matters(and yeah a good manager who lets you grow). Rest all can go suck a bag of dicks if they sell on “name”

      Yeah, but if the money is comparable then it does matter. Every job should, ideally, be helping you prepare for your next. A bigger name may open more doors and should be considered at least.
