    Current Employee - Treasury - Investments and Debt in Armonk, NY

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Top management is smart
    Company is well run and very profitable

    Cons

    Too many lifers that have titles only because of their seniority
    Lots of below mediocre people at the middle and lower levels
    Much lower than industry standard compensation
    Moving up the ladder is hard
    Very very political

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your lower level is rotting and this doesn't bode well for the company's future. Make sure you pay better and put in an effort to retain people

    Doesn't Recommend
    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    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.
