    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Work with very professional colleagues Good teamwork ethic Large, Enterprise-scope projects provides excellent exposure and experience. Good benefits, health, vacation, 401(k) match. Typically long-term employment if you're not a contractor

    Cons

    No upward mobility Long, stressful hours Stagnant pay for professional, non-managerial employees. Constant crisis management Zero investment in training, no college program any more.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your American employees. You've squeezed them so hard that you've killed morale in Global Services. Remember that the recession is over and good employees will repay your lack of loyalty in-kind. You can't manage cash flow to the quarterlies forever without investing in your people and infrastructure.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Solid company, good benefits, decent opportunity to grow and change positions, fairly solid in job security. Work from home culture is nice for flexibility.

    Cons

    You may lose your mind if you need to be around people and co-workers. You have to trouble shoot on your own because alot of the support is outsourced. Everything is very disjointed, there are 12 different places that are concidered the 'main source to find information'. Unless you change roles in you are looking at little to no pay increase.
