First 3 years was very acceptable. Last year and a half was soul-crushing.

I worked at IBM

ProsGood benefits. Good job security. If you're on the right team it can be a good place to work.
There are some good people there and some are very knowledgeable. If you can work with the right people you can learn a lot.

ConsDon't expect to get any raises, not even to keep up with cost of living.
You will always hear the same excuse, "there is no money for raises" even during times the company is posting record profits.
Don't expect the company to look out for your best interests. I worked through a bout of hard chemo therapy with no recognition for my sacrifice.

Advice to Senior ManagementRecognize your employees efforts. Try and see past profits and see people as people.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
