Former Employee - Advisory Software Engineer in Austin, TX

I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

You get to work with some of the most talented people in the world. Highly diverse workforce. Great benefits. Unique and very professional culture.

Cons

High stress at times. Many times cuts are made in personnel with remaining personnel expected to pick up the workload. Work/Life balance is stressed, but difficult or impossible to achieve.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest more in training. Even though IBM is a top tier company, it needs to become the far and above the top tier company it once was.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    It's a paycheck until something else pops up. Nothing more.

    Cons

    There is no stability at all. Jobs are slowly sent to India or one of the regional centers created in the States. Layoffs are all too common. There is zero training provided and management has no idea what their poeple do because everybody is remote.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Middle management needs to value their employees more. Sr Management is a lost cause. Totally clueless. SDM's that think they know what they are doing but have no idea how to manage an account.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
