I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

They have a strong work from home culture.
As a global company there is a lot of opportunity to work employees from other countries.

Cons

In the group I am in there is zero budget for training, I haven't had training for over seven years.
The company is very top heavy with more managers than "doers".
The utilization rate is outrageously high, if you take your vacation you have to make it up with overtime otherwise you can not meet your utilization target.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Show some appreciation for top rated employees. I am a "1" performer and don't feel any effort to retain employees like me has been made. If anything I feel like the higher my level has been the more I have felt the push to actually leave IBM.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Lots of assignments, no dearth of opportunities. Many international assignments ( even to exotic places ) if you want more global experience. Does almost any technology that you can think of.

    Cons

    No HR ( managers make all the decisions ), which is not very efficient if the manager is not capable.
    Average salary, and fewer perks.
    Slow career growth. Brutal hire and fire policies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The crux of IBM is the manager. IBM needs to give more importance while hiring managers .
