I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Great colleagues, interesting work when it's not yanked from you and sent overseas

Cons

Company has sunk to the lowest of lows. Employee benefits keep getting chopped. Good people are 'managed out' of the business with trumped up reviews. Blatant age discrimination . Anyone cover fifty walking around with a target on their back. Soaring profits are pocketed by execs, doesn't trickle down to employees, instead they get chopped
Can't get decent equipment to do your job. Customers are getting a lot of smoke and mirrors. would give the rating 0 star if possible. Wanna know what's going on internally look at the comments section on allianceibm.org.

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

    Pros

    You will work with very smart people

    Cons

    The 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 ManagementAdvice

    Change 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.

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    very independent work culture. minimal office interaction in your home city; basically you're remote from your home city and travel to your clients. some may view this as a con.

    Cons

    minimal interaction with managers. excessive paperwork required annually to document annual performance. some may prefer to work independently.

    No opinion of CEO
