    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    In my experience people are genuinely nice, and pleasant to work with. The organization still has a culture of management, which on the whole is good. Compared with some of the big partnerships IBM competes against you are spared a lot of the drama. The brand recognition is great in the market place. No one will ever say "IBM who?" Salaries are competitive. Benefits are so-so.

    Cons

    While the people are nice, management has no loyalty towards their employees. They regularly do "Headcount adjustments" - basically firing your colleagues with as little as three days notice and paltry severence pay. The lesson any straight thinking person draws from this is obvious. Utilization targets are draconian. 90% utilization calculated on a 45 hour week - with two weeks of mandatory education per year, and as much as 12 hours of travel a week just to get to the job site. Even in an industry known for long hours this is abusive. Manditory work weekends get announced because "we missed our numbers" - and we are told to make sales and build sales pipeline, while at the same time there is a strangle hold on budget for any marketing activities. This means that marketing activity is not counted towards the utilization number... The intranet is not well designed or maintained so it in not very useful. Too much of the mundane technology you need to deal with is self service and frankly does not work. Tech support is useless and can eat up hours of your life.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its a truism that 'bean counters' rule. At IBM GBS the main complaint is that you have people making management decisions and policy with aparently no understanding of what activities the numbers are actually attached to. So they do things like save on marketing spend, and then do not have the tools or Intellectual property to be competitive against other consulting shops. They save some dolars on IT technical support in India, and waste hours and days of consultant time They do layoffs, I can only assume because they feel they need to cut costs short term, but at the cost of not being able to sell or staff projects in the following months, and at the cost of morale and employee loyalty. The single minded management to their utilization regime means that people are often forced to do things that viewed objectively make little sense, and all of this is motivated by fear of being laid off. The old IBM may have been paternalistic, but if you talk to old IBMers it was a better place to work. It could be a great place to work instead of just meh, and it could deliver much greater value to its clients and better performance in the market place. I have real ambivaelence about reccommending IBM as a place to work... Day to day work environment is good because of the colleagues. Upper management, policies, direction leave me cold.
