Pros

Family oriented benefits
Easy time in this organisation

Cons

Lower pay as compared to industry

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clear those seniors who are just clocking their time to retirement. This saves more $ for the entire organisation as compared to cutting cost by removing coffee for the company.

Doesn't Recommend

Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Direct access to the state-of-the-art technologies, even you have the opportunity to contribute.
    Salary and benefits are good.
    You can have Home office.

    Cons

    Discrimination among contractors and IBMers. USA employees don't like contractors from other countries and tend to do discrimination. IBM still uses contractor approach to hire new employees. IBM managers don't have respect for employees time and the can request to attend to office even on holidays.

    Doesn't Recommend

    No opinion of CEO

    Current Employee - Software Developer in Markham, ON (Canada)

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

    Pros

    Some very smart people
    Lots of job flexibility
    Wide range of areas to work in
    Easy to transfer

    Cons

    A lot of managers and layers of management
    A lot of project politics
    Processes/policies get in the way of doing real work
    Incompetents Become Movers (IBM)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Most processes and procedures seem to be rubber stamps or CYA's for IBM instead of actually helping work get done efficiently or reasonably.
    High power distance and the constant threat of off-shoring is not conducive to a productive environment.
