I worked at IBM

Pros

TO say you worked for "IBM"

Cons

Management didn't care. Open door policies tagged you as a bad employee. There is no ability to move to another division within the company. The only way to work for IBM these days is if they buy the company you currently work for. Then they weed out almost everyone from the original company and lay off existing staff and move the jobs to Argentina (the new india).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Instead of all the layoffs, find places for employees to stay within the company. I realize "everyone is replaceable, and everyone wants to work for IBM". But you guys are loyal to the company - and you wouldn't get your bonuses if it weren't for the pions doing all the work. It's also way to common for most people to not get raises and bonus pools are always next to nothing. Unless your manager deems you to be a superstar - you're screwed with this company.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    The IBM US corporate culture used to be a culture of cooperation and working together for the benefit of all, and some of the old-timers still have
    that attitude lingering around. Try to work with them if you can find them, but their numbers are dwindling because . . .

    Cons

    FEAR is commonplace. It is every man/woman for themselves and nobody really knows what 'doing a good job' means anymore. Some of the best and brightest are laid off so what exactly what does 'doing a great job' mean?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have taken a great company and turned it into nothing but a 'business case' for enriching yourselves at the expense of the workers, the customers, and the stockholders. You have lost touch
    with your humanity and you are cowardly hiding behind your layers of PR and huge layers of bureaucracy.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Ability to get a broad base of experience(s). Overall great coworkers...middle management has no ability to do anything expect inspect everything. Too many people, in sales roles, working form home and claiming credit for stuff versus making it happen.

    Cons

    Bureaucracy, constant micromanagement, too many people get paid on sales deals that have nothing to do with them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Rewarded the true performers.
