Lots of opportunity, flexibility and good people, but upper management seems to always be after you.

Advisory Engineer (Current Employee)
Hopewell Junction, NY

ProsGrowth opportunity
Work flexibility (location,hours) and freedom
Lower-to-mid management tends to be pretty good

ConsForced-curve ratings hinder development teams in a constant effort to shift engineering jobs overseas. Salary growth low to non-existent. Every new year comes with its new set of decrees worsening your working conditions. So while objectively there are some really good jobs to be had - the FEELING is that your company hates you.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink how to make your employees FEEL good about the company before all that's good about IBM disappears.
