I have been working at IBM

Pros

Base Pay, Benefits, Not Working Fridays (lets be real here, nobody does it), ability to travel all over the country

Cons

People just get trapped in this job and dont even get me started on a manager reviewing you who you have never met or worked with before....that makes sense

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Just take a look at your business model and realize that you arent going to be able to do this forever, you are doing well for your share holders now but you better start planning for the future

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    - bright intelligent worker bees
    - flexibility to work from home

    Cons

    - management and team leads who say what upper mgmt wants to hear -- not what they should hear
    - management and team leads who encourage lying and back-stabbing
    - few raises or bonuses and constant threat of resource actions
    - expectation of 24X 7 availability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Palmisano and higher execs need to be replaced -- in it only for their executive bonuses not for health and growth of the company

    I have been working at IBM

    Pros

    Friday flex days, planned events by the COE, 401K match, having IBM on your resume, working with 350 other 20 year olds

    Cons

    Being controlled by 3 different contradicting forces, low low pay, not much of a bonus, constantly being inundated with IBM propaganda, knowing that no matter how hard you work, you will get the same ratting. Unless your good at sucking up, you won't find much progression here. Management stresses having experience in all different roles, and then five seconds later will tell you how important it is to stay in the same job role for 2 years, this tends to go along with their standard practice of contradicting themselves and not having the intelligence to realize it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some of you are great from what I have heard...some of you got lucky by being here prior to the creation of the COE, thus enabling you by default to become managers...don't kid yourselves your really just baby sitters while the staff does all the work. The COE model has come of age and your involvement is more of an HR function than anything else
