    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    You can work at home, depending on fickle first line management.
    Some knowledgable people to work with and interesting projects if your one of the chosen ones.

    Cons

    Extreamly limited promotion opportunities.
    No pay rise for most people. I've had one raise in 8 years for only 1.5%.
    Cronyism rules the roost.
    PBC process puts you in competition with your peers. Used as a management tool to drive people out of the company.
    No job security. Constant resource actions and whenever possible the replacement with cheeper off shore resources (Your not a person in IBM.. Your a tool)
    Management by buzzword. It looks like "Agile" has been added to the dictionary. Sadly Agile isn't something IBM can claim to be. Bureaucratic describes IBM.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You can't turn a company around when you treat employees the way IBM has been doing.

    Placing Shareholders, Management renumeration then in equal last are customers and employees is no way to ensure IBM lasts another 100 years. I keep hearing that IBM is too big to fail, I sadly no longer believe this.

    Drop the PBC system. It's flawed and you know it. Look at the evidence!!! Sadly the system is now so broken my second line sent a generic list to cut and paste into 2015. Sadly this won't make any difference as you sort the ranking out behind closed doors without SMART objectives so CRONYISM is rife.

    Explain the renumeration package of out CEO. No one understands how poor performance can be rewarded in this way.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
