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

    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.

    I have been working at IBM full-time for 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.
