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

IT Architect (Former Employee)
Atlanta, GA

I worked at IBM

ProsOpportunities 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.

ConsExtreme 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 Senior ManagementCome 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
