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

Pros

Good pay, but raises limited to top performers.

Cons

Increased only given to top contributors.
PBC (appraisal) system is flawed and is based on a skew to meet IBM's financial objectives rather than employee's contribution.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Develop new appraisal system which is based solely on employee's contribution. Remove the tie to financials. Most employees would rather get a fair appraisal and no money that a bad appraisal to justify no money.

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

    Pros

    Lots of great products and a wide variety of positions. You have the opportunity to travel and even work in countries all around the world.

    Cons

    Company has changed a lot in 20 years. It used to be a great, fun place to work. Now, however, the entire company is run by accountants. Not nearly the creative freedom that use to be there. The Wild Duck is extinct.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust the employees to do the right thing. Fire 80% of the accountants. Even the lawyers are better to work with than the accountants now.
