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

Pros

Outstanding people - exceptional integrity. For people who have an opportunity to work for IBM, it remains one of the premier enterprises on the planet

Cons

I don't have any real cons. With all of the acquisitions in the past 10 years, more than half the workforce has been with IBM 5 or less years. The culture is not what it was, but I think this is probably true for most companies

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue with the focus on growing profitiability. Without profit, nothing else is possible

    Pros

    People in general are very high caliber

    Cons

    IBM used to be a great company to work for but they have established a culture where American Emplouyees continual are squeezed every year something is cut , benefits, salary, bonuses. THi shas been very successful for IBM they have been able to report successful earnings and they think that folks will want to continue to stay and work and be loyal

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Ability to work remotely
    - Exposure to many different clients and businesses

    Cons

    - Constant Layoffs (or 'Resource Actions', as they call it). They literally lay hundreds to thousands of people off every Quarter
    - They overwork their people tremendously

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop laying people off every three months
