No opinion of CEO

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 Management

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!

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    The only reason I can think of working for IBM is the work/life balance. But the company is keeping layoff people and outsourcing jobs. So the workload is getting heavier every day.

    Cons

    Low Salary and worst benefits in the industry Very political work environment No career opportunities at all. Old technologies and not used in world outside. The only way to pop up company profit is to layoff and outsource.

    Advice to Management

    Treat your employees nice and don't think of them as slave and cost.
