Once Was A Great Place to Work! Not True Today!

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

Pros

Aggressive software acquisition strategy. Ability to work from home. A great place to start ones career and build a foundation of skills.

Cons

Subjective performance reviews. Monthly driven quota objectives versus quarterly. Too few reps make their quota objectives with quota assignment tied back to Wall Street expectations versus reality. Too many layers of top management who add little value. IBM is supposed to be "family friendly" but taking vacation days is not encouraged.

    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
