I worked at IBM as an intern (less than an year)

Pros

Very good experience, everyone was very friendly and collaborative. Got to work on some pretty interesting things, obtained experience in technologies that would help with getting another job.

Cons

Sometimes not much direction was given in what one should do to tackle a problem (though help was always available)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Keep doing things the way you are! Hire more bright young minds to do work.

    As counts just profit per share, employees are treated without respect

    Pros

    Still good image and it is good to have in your CV that you worked for this company

    Cons

    Low salaries, respectless treatment of employees, even if company is overall seen as a LGBT friendly in fact there is a number of homophobic manegers across the world that know how to influence negativly career of gay people who are out... Fireing best employees on cost of quality of services. An administrative monstrum what means that each employee needs to spend 50% of time on the admin work...Internal tools are crap. What IBM is selling is not used internally.
    Agenda 2015 which means that IBM want to achive 20US$ profit per share is causing that talented people are fired.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove power from CFO's who are destroying the company on expense of "savings" whenever they can without considering the damage it is causing

    I have been working at IBM as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    They allow work from home. Helps balance work -life during normal work days!

    Cons

    Work is way too much and without any overtime pay!! When the time's bad, they make you sit at home without pay for months on furloughs!! They unlike many other companies cannot have anyone sit without work for even a moment! They do not even inform ahead of time of impending furloughs, for you to find a better opportunity..its always last minute that way!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Its not always about working towards managing 'stock price' but there is a lot more involved in running a company!
