Good benefits and flexibility, not so good upper management

Staff Software Engineer (Current Employee)
San Jose, CA

I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

ProsFlexible with personal life.
Good benefits.
Room to grow: you can move across groups, departments, etc. relatively easily.
Culture that promotes integrity.

ConsBudget freezing is crippling teams. The 'do more with less' mentality needs to stop.
Decisions from execs and finance are negatively affecting teams.
Benefits could be better compared to other high tech companies.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep teams together, don't tear them apart, especially when they succeed in putting out a good product. Bring in more people to bolster teams or you're going to lose good talent that you already have.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
