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

Pros

Access to a great diversity of technologies. Work from home when not at client locations. Not micro-managed. Ability to move into new roles for career growth. Great matching 401K program and other benefits.

Cons

Sometimes difficult to balance work and life being in pre-sales and the constant drive to get deals to closure.

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

    Pros

    Lots of Options in pursuing Career Goals Management Flexible about vacations Compensation seems fair in general

    Cons

    Questionable Lay off practices. (ie High Perfomers being let go) Cut back onsite education funding Large environment causes communication issues New 401K Funding Policy (All Matching funds deposited at end of year)

    Advice to Management

    Management should be more actively involved in managing/guiding top performers. IBM does a good job providing tools but management seems to think of it as their lowest priority to get involved.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Professional coworkers, best benefits package I've ever seen, very good job security, large support structure - everyone's connected, IBM-ers stick together.

    Cons

    Poor leadership, pay raises are a foreign concept, and advancement opportunities look more like a career change.

    Advice to Management

    Show your employees you care by helping them take care of their families, and lead your workers; don't just manage them.
