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

Pros

Large company. Some units do well even in hard economic times

Cons

Large company leading the way in globalization. Goal is to eliminate a huge number of U.S. jobs in the next few years

Advice to ManagementAdvice

As IBM becomes more a service delivery company, you need to keep aware of how your policies affect employee moral and loyalty

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Working from home, 401K match, medical

    Cons

    Lots of rules and restrictions. Silo mentality for job roles and responsibilities. Can be frustrating for someone who is used to and enjoys wearing many hats in their job function. It takes forever to get a decisions made. Feels like 70's managment style.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The IBM way is not always the best way. Take a step back after acquirirng a company and try to understand what made it suceesful. A little culture change can go a long way for a large company.

    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Afforded me ability to worked on some exciting projects. Able to get my PMP certification.

    Cons

    Now they only seem to care about bottom line - not employee.
    Too big.
    Employees don't really care anymore as they all think they will be next one to be laid off - in US only as IBM now only hires in other countries - India/Romania, etc. where they can get really cheap labor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As I told a employee that is still there...get out...it is a toxic environment.
