    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Global brand name recognition in Technology.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive, heavily bureucratic company structure, too many management layers, not quite a meritocracy. Performance assessments are geared towards appearing to find "fault" rather than growth opportunities. Legend has it that

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Align talent with projects that utilize their core competencies. Turnover is high due to dissatisfaction with nature of project challenge and fuzzy career advancement.

    I worked at IBM full-time (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
