    Pros

    Technician Training, Technical Experience, 401k plan.

    Cons

    Yearly lay offs, Employee Intimidation, Mandatory Overtime, Mandatory Weekend, Mandatory Nights, No salary increase only salary cuts, Management out of touch

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that have job experience doing the job they are managing. Threatening employee with job lost is not going to get them to work harder or better.

  2. Dead-end location with nowhere to go but out!

    Pros

    There are some genuinely good people there. A lot to learn. Aside from the healthcare, there are good benefits if you take the time to find them. Work-life balance is there, but it's up to you to seek it rather than expect them to give it to you.

    Cons

    Dead-end position. No opportunities for advancement. Excellent performer, unable to secure raise -- other performers in same group received a 1% raise at the end of PBCs. The only way you could go up is to leave IBM.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to your first-line people. They are the ones who keep the company afloat. Pay them what they're worth. Keep them incentivized to stay. Improve benefits.
