    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Depending on job, good freedom to schedule your work day. I've been lucky to only have 3 managers in 31 years. This is not normal. Some people get a new manager every year.

    Cons

    Roadkill (Roadmap) 2015 is causing tremendous negative employee moral issues. Company is decreasing benefits and increasing workload. 401k change is really stupid. No real care or concern for employee anymore. Respect for individual is no more

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take less from the company and give some back to the employee s you pretend to value.

    Current Employee - Project Manager in Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

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

    Pros

    Possibility to work and learn with some very smart and experienced individuals.
    Highly valued externally as an employer.
    New opportunities come up constantly.
    Many different areas of technology and services where you can progress.

    Cons

    There seems to be a lack of structure in many of the business areas. Communication within large work groups is often insufficient and not transparent. Management often fully aware of the inputs/outputs that their function is working with. More focus on "IBM internal" rather than the client, which is in conflict with the values.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More focus on the clients and what they need in order to grow their business. Ensuring teams/functions have solid structure. Leading by example is something that is far too rarely evident.
