I have been working at IBM as a contractor for more than a year

Pros

It's all in the name.

Cons

The environment was controlling and uncomfortable. White noise was piped into the facility, and you couldn't hear anyone a few cubicles away.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Recognize your employees as actual people and not numbers. Don't conform the environment to upper management's personality. Let your employees be themselves, and comfortable in their own skin. The culture of the facility should be organic and not forced.

    I worked at IBM full-time for 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
