Pros

Culture of innovation. The 800 pound gorilla. Progressive and multicultural work environment. Morale is good, and compensation is competitive.

Cons

IBM == "I'm By Myself". Working remotely all the time can at times be alienating.

    Pros

    I am surrounded by smart people who are competent and focused.

    Cons

    This is an enormous company with many, many layers and internal navigation is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Senior managers tend to "help" by requiring vast amounts of reporting and checkpoints. Getting out of the way would be even more helpful - seriously.

    Pros

    none that I can think of. IBM has an attitude of wanting more for less. The ONLY people who matter are the shareholders, employees are treated badly and expected to give their total commitment to a company that will suck you dry and then throw you aweay when you cannot keep up with the pressures of the work. The ONLY good thing abuot the company is that the insurance package is good compared to some other companies, but even that is being whilttled away year by year. Equipment for actually doing the job is limited and of incinsistent quality, I even had to buy my own monitor as the company refused to allow one as thehy did not feel it was required for me to actually do productive work!!!

    Cons

    long hours, bad conditions, more work for less attitude from management

    Advice to Management

    look to rebalance the company and push back on customers who are a pain.
