Current Employee - Senior Consultant in Armonk, NY

I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Amazing opportunities. Unlimited resources. Travel to see the world. High performers are valued. Good benefits and competitive pay. More location flexibility than any other company I have ever experienced.

Cons

Promotion process is needlessly complex and time-intensive. Paper burden is high in general for most administrative manners. Tech support is brutally cost-efficient. Expect long hours, but not needlessly so.

    Former Employee - Senior Financial Analyst in Somers, NY

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility to work from home is only Pro. Sub-standard pay for the grunts who do the work. Unreasonable bosses and expectations despite consistently "professional demeanor" exhibited.

    Cons

    You will waste valuable years thinking you can advance but you CAN'T unless you have an "IN"... and then you wiull be shown the door once your pay gets to a point where they can get someone cheaper. You learn NOTHING but how to work for IBM. Experience there looks good on a resume but no practical benefit to you whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Laugh in your employee's faces instead of behind their backs -- at least it'll be honest.
