I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Flexibility in work location, many employees work remotely.

Cons

They say they are committed to work life balance but I did not experience that in action. You are required to be available to work at many times that interfere with off-time and vacations.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at IBM (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    there is not mutch good about working for IBM. However, who you work with are good people and there are a lot of very good techs

    Cons

    IBM is the cheapest company you will ever work for. EG if you want a keyboard and mouse at your desk you have to buy your own. the managements highest goal is to keep their bonuses. and they attcheve this by being unethical in how they treat their employees and customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    start being ethical in your business practice
