Pros

Loved working from home. Managers were excellent in terms of dealing with direct reports. Good work-life balance.

Cons

No corporate loyalty towards employees any more. Only focus of HQ is to improve EPS, any way at any cost. In the long-run, this will kill an American icon.

Advice to Management

Quit sending American jobs to Brazil and India.

    Pros

    Salary, benefits, career development, management, team spirit, family values oriented, etc.

    Cons

    Honestly can't think of any. I know a lot has changed since I was laif off in 2005, but I still believe IBM is one of the greatest, & one of the most admired U.S. companies of all-time.

    Advice to Management

    Always keep your employees happy & they'll aways work hard for you, which in turn makes you look good to your bosses.


  2. Practically begging experienced engineers to quit so they can be replaced with young, cheaper new hires.

    Pros

    A few years look good on the resume. Opportunity to advance career by spending a couple years in a developing country.

    Cons

    Unlike a few years ago, few options to move to a different, growing area. No retraining, or any training. Benefits reduced every year.

    Advice to Management

    Stop pandering to Wall Street. Revive company value that considers employees an asset.
