Pros

Good company vision, wide range of jobs and great employee policies.

Cons

Not the same IBM as when I started. I hate hearing that employee's are the most valued resource and they lay off good employee, which could be move to targeted jobs.

Advice to Management

Just be open about market needs and balancing. Your employees are not stupid and will handle the truth better than you think. My best managers were the honest and open ones. I would bend over backwards for them.

    Pros

    There are many roles within Finance that you may be able to have, Finance people constantly switch roles within the company. People are nice for the most part.

    Cons

    From what I heard from full time employees salary is not the best, and everything is highly based on very strict deadlines, You may put in many hours a week and see no compensation for it. Since it is such a big company and people switch jobs constantly, you may never find an answer for some of your questions, or it may take for ever.

    Advice to Management

    Provide better compensation to employees and be more conscious about their personal time outside IBM, just because all employees have lap tops, that does not mean they should always be working.

  2. Big Blue
