A once great company, now not so much

Marketing Executive (Current Employee)

I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 8 years

ProsYou will work with very smart people

ConsThe compensation and incentive programs don't encourage collaboration or staying around. There is little reward for great people managers and no disincentive for poor ones. Decision making is held at the very top of the hierarchy which discourages risk taking or even straight talk.

Advice to Senior ManagementChange the compensation and incentive programs.
Push decision making lower down in the organization.
Drive more transparency. Everyone I work with is afraid to speak the truth.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Systems Administrator (Current Employee)
Corona, CA

I have been working at IBM full-time for 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.… Advice to Senior Management: Middle management needs to value their employees more. Sr Management is a lost cause. Totally clueless. SDM's… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
