    Pros

    IBM has a lot of employees that are loyal and have stayed with the company a long time. They offer very good benefits and are a long standing company. They are very professional and require high performance and professionalism.

    Cons

    IBM has yearly layoffs and the bonus structure and pay is very low compared to other technology companies. Opportunity for advancements are rare and the company does not have a hire within mentality. Much of the work is outsourced.

    I have been working at IBM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    -Good resources and knowledge available if you are willing to search
    -Management doesn't know what you do for a living, leaving you alone half of the time
    -Process centric, can help you in your next job

    Cons

    -People don't care about you as a colleague and a profession, or anything for that matter;
    -Managers usually are clueless, nowadays it is rare to find someone worth being called a 'manager', majority are just plain do-nothing, conf-calls-all-day-long types
    -Bureaucracy is king

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Errrr start being managers, making decisions and adding some value, or helping those who do

    No opinion of CEO
