Former Employee - Project Manager in Hopewell Junction, NY

I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Competitive salary
EXCELLENT Benefits
Vast knowledge base & learning resources
Great place to build your skill base
Global teams

Cons

VERY High Stress
Executive Management that is only interested in their next position
Managers that often have little actual management experience
Limited respect for the individual employee
Very high attrition through layoffs within the US workforce

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop laying off subject matter experts & US workforce. You are losing many years worth of intellectual capital, dedication, loyalty and respect every time IBM lets someone with 20+ years of experience go. Replacing the US employee with a foreign workforce helps lower man hour costs, but is costing IBM productivity and dedication due to the lower skilled, less experienced asian, mexican, european, chinese, and slavic workers they are replacing long time US workers with. Stop focusing on the stock price and profit margin and focus on revitalizing workforce in America!
