Pros

Exposure to large commercial accounts. Employee stock purchase plan. Access to education classes, materials and certifications. Work from home. Partnerships with other large companies provide for good networking.

Cons

Opportunities for advancement are limited in some positions due to a tendency to pigeonhole employees in current role from lack of availability of trained resources to assume responsibilities. Extreme cost cutting measures especially in Q4 limiting education, travel and hiring. Many layers of management to navigate. Distribution of work across global regions slows down delivery of projects. Salaries below market value. Recent 401k changes are viewed as unfavorable to employees. Overall low morale.

Advice to Management

More cross-training of employees. Listen to front line employees to understand results of cost-cutting measures. Work/Life balance is purely on paper not reality.

    Pros

    Ability to work from home

    Cons

    No loyalty and increasing population of contract workers.

    Advice to Management

    This company became great because of the people it hired. Outsourcing these responsibilities have increased profit for now, but you have put IBM's reputation at risk.
