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

Pros

Family friendly so wonderful for anyone who needs flexibility due to kids, etc, lots of work from home options. Great place to work if you are looking for work life balance and decent amount of job stability

Cons

Very tight financial controls. Necessary to a certain extent given the size of the company but need to find a better happy medium and let lower level managers manage their budgets and make decisions

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hold managers and execs truly accountable for their finances so that you can bring management of budgets down to a lower level

    Pros

    Lots of people with 25+ years of experience who are a great resource to tap into

    Cons

    The raises are so slow (even as a top performer) that after 5 - 7 years, you're doing triple the work you were hired to do at the same time, new hires have caught up and surpassed your salary.... On a "good" year, a promotion is a 5% raise!!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    By giving your top performers 1-2% raises and bonuses, you're not giving them incentive to work hard and as the job market improves, you'll lose that top talent
