Pros

Great work/life balance Pretty much allowed to be yourself - good autonomy Reasonably varied work (sometimes) Can be interesting if all your ducks fall into line and you have a good team working on a good project

Cons

Huge administrative overhead Lots of incompetent people Perverse incentives created by poorly thought out performance metrics Feel like an employee ID number, not like a person Too much bidding for work that we want to win, not that we can do

Advice to Management

Looking up there is little to inspire me

    Pros

    Flexible hours, good internal policies, brand recognition, reasonable pension, okay salary, medium benefits

    Cons

    Company is changing and it's loosing many reward programs and recognition is drastically decreasing at a policy level. Too much depends on if your manager likes you... not about what you do and what you bring to the game.

    Advice to Management

    Speak to your employees regularly. Encourage them with words since there is no more bonuses and extras. If IBM doesn't make people start feeling good about working there again they will see people leave. There is more to a company than how much it pays and it's flexibility. Happy employees stay.
