    I have been working at IBM full-time

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, flexibility, chance to work with very smart people. Allows creativity. People are generally very nice.

    Cons

    Salary/benefits not really competitive with Silicon Valley, and really not tied closely enough to performance. Still stuck in old habits, and hasn't really adapted to try to run with Silicon Valley. HR has too much power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to compete with Google for talent. Work harder to incent performance.

    Pros

    Generally Smart People - good IBM value training that would be better if management also honored it.

    Cons

    Restructured 4 months after I started and cut pay by 20%. No formal notice from HR about the change - just the manager saying you are getting a "haircut". Management Bites - no humanity - just pushing spreadsheets. AVOID the HR Open Door "challenge" Program - it is used just to validate and protect the company - all is used against you. They sell you the benefits of it only. Products are mostly unfinished and turn into a "project" to get running at client sites.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    People are not robots. Low level management has no clue about various industries they sell into... total joke.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
