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

Pros

Pay was decent. benefits were good.

Cons

Not a growing organization so there is not a lot of potential to move up. A lot of older people who are not open to new ideas and are threatened by younger people. Not much teamwork. Everyone is out for themselves and vie to make each other look bad.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Probably too late to turn things around.

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

    Pros

    was able to survive 30 yrs. and when I went there I knew I had been blessed to work for the best company in these United States.

    Cons

    greedy upper management, no longer can they cling on to respect for the individual. nothing is good enough, and you can work 24 / 7 and sometimes need to to survive. pay bonues on company performance are now a joke or don't exist and you can go years without a salary increase but you will get new and more job resposibilties. they continue to raise the bar and top mgmt. gets all the money and perks.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    reduce stress, listen to your people, go back to rewards and awards, and stop telling a person when you hit the MID range of your salary grade you're at 100% of pay.

    Former Intern - GBS Public Sector Consultant in Arlington, VA

    I worked at IBM as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good compensation
    Job security
    Widespread geographic options
    Clear paths of promotion

    Cons

    Boring
    Cookie-cutter projects
    Older employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There needs to be some stronger unification of IBM employees within the company, so they feel they're part of something important. IBM seemed uninspiring as a larger entity, and just a safe way to spend 9-5.
