I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

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

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Herndon, VA

    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.
