    I worked at IBM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Generally Good benefits. Coworkers are outstanding to work with.

    Cons

    Benefits are consistently declining for the past 15 years. No real improvement in benefits for past 15 years except for soft benefits that add little value for the employee. Company has progressed from very caring company to an employee beat down environment. Respect for the individual has disappeared. Aggressive layoffs yearly, unannounced to the public dismissing older employees. Morale low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up to the way you are treating employees.

    Neutral Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
