Cons

Slow / old process, heavy work load, 401K match payment moved to end of year, poor training for new team members, slow to move to cloud and slow to adopt new bus. models. Very risk averse.

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

    Pros

    Huge network, ability to move around within the company. Mostly great people. Predictable culture. Rewarded with promotions for exercising my passion, following my interests. Have to admire a company that knows how to sustain itself for decades.

    Cons

    Exasperating organizational infighting and agendas are to be expected within this vast company, despite a facade of collaboration. I wish it seemed genuine. Workload increasing too steadily to work on career advancement. Seeing I will have to sell my work-life balance to reach the next level. Fear I'll be politely shuffled out the door in 10 years anyway, for costing too much.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your eyes to what's going on among your areas. It might not be beneficial to the company as a whole.

    when thinking of doing resources actions to gain EPS, think more about the long term effect on employee stamina
