Pros

Young & dynamic team Old renowned company to put on your resume

Cons

Low chances of promotion Work-life balance is not respected - there is no personal life Biased decisions on evaluating employees Almost no employee benefits HR false marketing (promises that to not become true after employment)

Advice to Management

Think more about your employees as they are not only numbers on your list of bar codes.

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume. Good starting salary. Great co-workers. Flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Salary cut from year one. Furloughs every year. Double digit erosion of salary even as the company posts record breaking profits year after year. De-motivation seems to be a built in theme to encourage you to leave. Middle management is lost as out of touch decisions roll downhill from above. Absolutely no incentive, monetarily or otherwise to improve. Clients are not a priority, only stockholders. May not be so impressive on a resume for long given their continuing effort to establish a horrible reputation as a bad company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    To upper management, if you really care about IBM, give employees a reason to stay, not leave. Cutting human resources so callously time after time in order to impress stockholders will eventually result in a talentless vacuum. Word is already out there IBM is not a good company to work for, why do you strive to make it worse? Even offshore workers are dismayed and disillusioned. You know how hard you have to work to make offshore resources shun you? Giant websites exist just to document IBM transgressions against it's human resources because they are so numerous and vast. ARE YOU HEARING ANYTHING UP THERE??? ANYTHING???
