Current Employee - Systems Administrator in Corona, CA

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

Pros

It's a paycheck until something else pops up. Nothing more.

Cons

There is no stability at all. Jobs are slowly sent to India or one of the regional centers created in the States. Layoffs are all too common. There is zero training provided and management has no idea what their poeple do because everybody is remote.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Middle management needs to value their employees more. Sr Management is a lost cause. Totally clueless. SDM's that think they know what they are doing but have no idea how to manage an account.

    Pros

    Ginni is working to put the spark back in the company and to make IBM more relevant. I hope that she succeeds.

    Cons

    - Burdensome procedures and policies slows down decision making and execution.
    - Bottom line growth has been at the expense of employee benefits and raises.
    - Career advancement options not understood, for those who don't live near/work at IBM headquarters
    - Employee morale is at a low in many parts of IBM

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    With a new CEO, it looks like the company is moving in the right direction, but early to tell.

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Good to have IBM on resume, some opportunities still exist

    Cons

    Becoming a burn and churn company. Has become a company run by accountants; use to believe in respect for the individual; no more.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Realize the people are your best resource.
