    Pros

    Top-notch opportunities, a wealth of resources, and good colleagues

    Cons

    Middling pay, bureaucracy, poor focus on internal management skills and rewards

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on developing and compensating solid performers. Make management and transition positions worth having, rather than a purgatory for progression and real pay.

    Former Employee - Staff Hardware Engineer in Austin, TX
    Former Employee - Staff Hardware Engineer in Austin, TX

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Quality of coworkers. Some really great people still work there. (but probably not for long)

    Cons

    Management is totally focused on financial engineering instead of product engineering. This has led to poor/nonexistant morale and high quality employees leaving in droves. Development team is a shell of its former self. Probably too damaged to be repaired at this point. IBM can only be considered a last resort employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They don't listen, so this is a waste of time. Too busy counting the bonus money while Rome burns around them.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
