    Pros

    Working with very smart people...

    Cons

    Company doesn't spread the fruits off success with employees...only the very top employees are financially benefitting from one of the best corp. turnarounds in American business.

    Advice to Management

    Great Sales people are financially motivated. It is a travesty not to pay the sales execs who tee up all the Services oppty's anything for Signings. Account movement and unreasonable twice a year quota increases negate equitable pay for performance !!!

    IBM now stands for Incredibly Bad Morale or I'm By Myself. What was a great place to work is now sad and dysfunctional.

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

    Pros

    Still some very bright and talented people left. Have flexibility in setting work hours as long as salaried workers do 20% overtime.

    Cons

    Teammates are now considered competition due to regular layoffs. Managers will tell you that upper management doesn't care about us. Little risk taking or attempts at improving things because most think it is fruitless.

    Advice to Management

    Hire managers that have actually done the work of the people they are "managing " and give them the autonomy to do what's right, not what saves shareholders $.02 per quarter. Reviewing pipeline spreadsheets is not managing. Return to investing in employees instead of buying and selling them.
