Started as a great employer and went steadily downhill

Pros

Flexibility and diversity. It's a large company and if you get in the right department, you have a chance to move to different areas.

Cons

Expected more and more to be done with fewer people and moving more jobs offshore. Salaries don't even keep up with inflation any more.

Advice to Management

It used to be that loyal, dedicated, skilled employees were rewarded and secure but that's no longer the case. IBM doesn't follow their own values - so disappointing to see in what was a great company. More concerned with profits than people.

    Pros

    Flexible working - nobody keeping a check on you - getting good quality work done is the priority A culture of generally helpful people with a positive team ethic

    Cons

    Extremely low salary with managers powerless to raise it (make sure you get a healthy starting salary) Lack of a sense of team, with full time remote working the norm, and meetings rare and focussed, with little time for informal interactions Some very poor managers Unnecessary cost-cutting measures at all times (from shoddy phones to cumbersome processes to get work-related travel approved, etc) Top-down communications with an occasional cursory "forum" with management

    Advice to Management

    Start to think of employee morale as a valuable asset rather than a superfluous luxuary that can be easily cut.
