    Current Employee - Global Program Manager in New York, NY
    Current Employee - Global Program Manager in New York, NY

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good onboarding, great people for the most part. Great research team and resources.

    Cons

    Not using proper hiring processes for junior team. Not reporting results responsibly. No 360 degree reviews come PBC time. No transparency within senior leadership. Although there is a lot of talk about work-life balance, everyone works 60+ hours a week. It's the norm. Salaries for most positions is below the industry average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace and model corporate values. Don't continue to make promises that are never fulfilled.
