Pros

+ smart colleagues
+ LOVED the working from home
+ good starting salary (but see below - they gave COL increases but raises weren't great)
+ tons of autonomy and challenges
+ lots of opportunities to transfer internally
+ Research group is great
+ client focus

Cons

- work being moved offshore -- constant threat of lay-off -- very unnerving
- managers are useless politicians
- employees below exec level (so, band 10 and under) treated like muppets
- senior mgmt detached & largely clueless
- mandatory rah-rah conferences in vegas
- stay out of GBS! they work consultants to death
- small salary increases

Advice to Management

IBM still has a great rep and products (hardware, not software), but quality of work at clients is suffering because of the constant cuts. Morale is terrible.

    Pros

    Genuinely appreciated equal standards accross the board, to explain what I mean. I reside in a at will state, however IBM believs that all employee should be govern equally. The rules that applied to the employees that didn't reside in a at will state also applied to employees that didn't reside in a at will state.

    Cons

    I honestly have nothing negative to say about this company. I was hired, one week before having a major car accident. IBM paid all my bills and was totally supportive and accomodating all the years employed there. If you ever recieve the opportunity to work for this company. Stay there as long as you can. You've made a excellent choice.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent work.
