Used to be great, I think I'm glad to be gone.

I worked at IBM

Pros

Opportunities to take on a wide variety of assignments. Access to a tremendous amount of knowledge via internal forums, wiki, blogs etc. I was able to work in marketing, sales, development, research, and services in my time there.

Cons

Extreme focus on utilization causes pressure to make up for earned vacation etc. Was asked to defer vacation to make up for others on the bench.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Come clean about the strategy behind the layoffs. It may not change things but I think it would go a long way towards reducing the anxiety hostility and fear that are out there.

    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.
