Pros

There is no Pros to being a US-based IBM employee.

Cons

No valid career plans, no raises, no emphasis on customers. Employees are left hanging in front of customers with no management support. The goal is to eliminate all US jobs, and to make it as uncomfortable as possible for US employees.

Advice to Management

Start concentrating and listening to customers instead of always concentrating on internal IBM affairs.

    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 Management

    Align talent with projects that utilize their core competencies. Turnover is high due to dissatisfaction with nature of project challenge and fuzzy career advancement.
