I have been working at IBM

Pros

IBM is a cornerstone in creating a very DIVERSE place to work and that is one of the reasons I was attracted to working here. It's the first place I was ever OUT from the beginning and have always been and will always be. I'm proud to work for such an inclusive and supportive company.

Cons

In working for such a large company with nearly 400,ooo people you feel like a number sometimes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay more attention to the people that make the company work. The people at the lower levels and eliminate some of the middle layers of management. There are too many managers getting in the way of the work at times. If you want to save money get rid of some layers of management.

    Pros

    Fair Pay, Work life Balance, Annual Bonus, Benefits, Corporate Credit Card. IBM does have a wonderful attitude towards it's employees. You are rewarded well for good work. When they let you go they offer you great packages plus training and allow access to professional counselors to help you get back in the work force. They started a alumni network so that employees can network and keep in touch as well as share information about jobs. This alumni network is sort of like a linked-in for former IBMers. The corporate card does help you with the travel issues. They made it comfortable to be on the road again.

    Cons

    Travel, Competitive Employees, Downsizing, Two many chiefs not enough Indians, Inferior Management, They favor non-heterosexual employees probably due to the travel situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more mothers working for the company to take full advantage of the work/life plan.
