Pros

Great benefits, great opportunities to grow and advance in a company of its size. Always amazed at what others are doing in other divisions.

Cons

The company is huge. The size is a problem and the politics are always in play. Some managers are very picky about scheduling even though employees are "encouraged" to take family time.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower employees to make decisions on their own without having to go through layers of management fat. You have some of the smartest employees in the world, utilize their strengths.

    Pros

    The benefits, such as health benefits and 401K are very good. Resources within IBM are great as well. The intranet and all its contents are great resources for employees at IBM.

    Cons

    I do not enjoy working for such a large company. There is excessive regulation and rigid conformity to formal rules working for such a large company where I have never had that working for other companies in the past. By being a consultant that travels, we have to file taxes in each state we travel to. The per diem rates we receive through IBM are considerably lower then that of the GSA federal rates and we as the employee lose out in the end.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I enjoy working for my manager. The only feedback I have for the leaders at IBM is to communicate with your employees as well as listen to what each employee has to say.
