I have been working at IBM full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Forward looking firm, plenty of opportunities for advancement, solid company history. Hard not to be excited working for an industry leader in many

Cons

Extremely large corporation, easy to get lost in the shuffle. Hard to keep up with all of the transitional elements.

Advice to Management

Keep listening to employees on the direction and vision for the future. Don't ignore what acquisitions were working towards.

    I worked at IBM full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large Company. Great Benefits. Flexible Schedule. Great feeling that you are working for a company with lots of tradition.

    Cons

    Too many levels of management. The job role was too focused. Buried in paperwork and useless databases. Much of the work was outsourced

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that you take more interest in your remote employees

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

    Pros

    I have nothing good to say at this point

    Cons

    20% underpaid versus the market, pay freezes, bonuses are almost unheard of, all decisions are made based on the 2015 roadmap which means they are focused on reducing costs at all costs with no thought to the long-term ramifications

    Advice to Management

    Wake up, morale in both hardware and software is absolutely non existant. You've taken pretty much everything possible away (secretaries, supply cabinets, Thanks awards, snow removal from the parking lots, pensions, bonuses). Everyone I talk to on a regular basis is actively looking for other employment.
