I have been working at IBM

Pros

I work 60-80 hours per week, and I make excellent money. IBM is a 24/7 global enterprise -- there is ALWAYS more work to be done and always more demands put on you. If you enjoy that atmosphere, you will do well and they will compensate you well for it.

Cons

The corporate culture is extremely competitive, meaning that if you don't work tons of hours you're not going to make it at IBM.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get in touch with what's happening "on the ground". Upper management has absolutely no clue what most of us do on a daily basis -- all they see are metrics and financial reports.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Work life balance, small groups people work in which helps a lot with learning esp. for an RCG like me who wanted to learn about not only process development but also integration and device.

    Cons

    Very limited scope of growth. Even the highest PBC rating of 1 does not mean much for variable pay and raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent in how variable pay and raises are calculated. Also help employees develop career advancement plans. IDP's should mean something.
