    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

    IBM experience would help looking for a job with another company.

    Cons

    IBM fails to make appropriate investments in assets at the risk of exposing customers to sub-standard facilities and/or risk for the services provided.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Many in management have financial backgrounds only, without technical expertise in the area in which they work. Often required investments are not made. But when the problem gets to a much higher level, you are asked how does this happen. Then at the annual evaluation you are told you did not contribute enough, hence a reduced rating. By forcing lower evaluations, IBM does not feel you merit a raise. The work expectations for a single individual often exceed what one person can possibly do, often requiring people to work 60 hour work weeks.
