Current Employee - IT Specialist in Gaithersburg, MD
Current Employee - IT Specialist in Gaithersburg, MD

I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Good on resume
learning technical skills

Cons

Management is inept. At least in the Gaithersburg, MD BCRS site.
No raises. Pay cuts.
Resource action to reduce workforce... then hiring for same job Months later. To me it looks like a way to get rid of higher paid skilled workers and replace with lower paid employees.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop Lying to employees.
Treat your employees better.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Best 401k match.

    Cons

    too many execs with opinions; too many business controls; overpricing engagements - price to deliver, not to win; 2015 plan has cut out people with institutional knowledge in their industry or area, with the ultimate goal of lining upper executive pockets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    go back to caring about the customer.

    Pros

    There are opportunities to learn while working on projects.
    In a big corporation like IBM, opportunity to travel to different geographies

    Cons

    Very little value associated with long term growth of employees
    For those not excited about travel, it can be very exhausting
