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 full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work life balance, great educational opportunites, great options for moving around and increasing your experience in many parts of the organization.

    Cons

    Layoff offs exected every 6 months or possibly quarterly, dont expect to be there for very long anymore. Working there and retiring from there is a thing of the past

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Attracting good talent will be difficult going forward since there is no job security anymore.
