    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Work from home option is great, but it works to the companies benefit now.
    Overall good people.

    Cons

    Pays way under market.
    Dont understand what there employees do.
    Heavily process driven and getting worse, affecting the ability to get the job done.
    Innovation is next to non-existent, excluding Research labs.
    Everything is tied to numbers instead of quality.
    All jobs are being shipped to China and India, all of them, so workload and responsbilties is at a all time high.
    Expected to work until the job is done or else you get threats, this means working 12 hour+ days.
    Payrises non-existent.
    No office perks, not even tea or coffee in the offices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understand your staff's discipline before you hand out ridiculous KPI's.
    Dont threaten your staff, as a way of motivation.
    Quality before revenue.
    Treat your staff better.

    Cons

    more focus on cost cutting than anything else; management does not recognize and reward top performers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your people in the US.
