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

Pros

Flexible work hours depending on the job

Cons

Horrible people management. Performance reviews are based on politics and not the individual. If you like to kiss butt, this is the place for you.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Less gossip, and get the facts from the employeess themselves, and not what everyone else is saying.

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    allows for flexibility in how time is worked

    Cons

    no salary increases, want you to exceed 60hr/wk to maintain targets and yet somehow maintain work /life balance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You are painting everyone with the same brush, a single work oriented person can work 24 hours a day, but a parent of young children cannot be pushed that hard and still be able to enjoy thier family

    I have been working at IBM full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Plenty of job opportunites to avail of within the company. Not necessary to constantly stick to the same role.

    Cons

    Very difficult to progress upwards. If you're working in an area that isn't recognised then you won't be recognised. It seems the only solution is to find somewhere else to work.
