I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Great company with tremendous people and resources. Benefits and compensation packages are very strong. Extensive job options allow for upward mobility. Strong in the local community.

Cons

Large and slow at times. Many of the tools and databases are outdated, ironic for the world's premier information technology corporation. Workload expectations can be high.

    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.

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great products. Amazing support. Best teaming / collaboration tools.

    Cons

    Very difficult to advance salary. Extremely high growth targets so 20% or less of sales team will make their sales quota. Seeming disregard for employee compensation and how that relates to overall work experience and retention. IBM thinks they can lose top talent and continue growing because they are IBM. We shall see.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the pork and do whatever is necessary to retain your top sellers.
