Current Employee - Manager - Information Architects in Chicago, IL

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

Pros

Large company with a lot of options across the company. A lot of products to bring together to solve a customers problem. Vacation is managed between you and your manager.

Cons

Draconian cost controls. Low moral across the company. Death by conference call. 401K is only funded in October - so if you leave before (or are laid off), you get nothing. The out of pocket cost for insurance for an average family is nearly $1000/month

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring the little things back. Thank you Awards. Sales comp plans that make people feel they can make money.

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

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing with 4-5 weeks of vacation time, 6 weeks of full paid sick leave and endless discounts from cell phone to car companies.

    Cons

    The amount of favoritism at Dubuque IBM is uncalled for. I see this daily as a team lead and management does not care for any employee besides themselves. All managers get a PBC rating of 1 no matter how poorly they do and get to downgrade each employee on the team to get a big bonus. I saw this the past few years and management looks the other way. It is sad to see this center has the worst turnover rate than any others.

    The average salary amount is $32,000. We advertise our jobs at $45,000 to $50,000 and rarely offer that rate.

    IBM used to be the place to work 10 years ago but with all the cuts in the past few years, I would advise not to work here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and communicate with them because your loosing them daily!
