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

    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.
