It's a job

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Durham, NC

ProsDecent bennies at ok salary for regular employees (for others, it's a completely different story). Flexibility of working from home was good. Some of the technologies being used are up-to-date; others are clearly legacy.

ConsThe hardware market is shrinking for a company like IBM, and also the company is moving technical work offshore as quickly as possible. Don't get trapped in a dead end position, or think that this place will offer a career.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe employees have a tremendous amout of cynicism about management, and are tired of being whipped, exploited and lied to. Productivity falls significantly when using global teams. But nobody thinks you care.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
