This year's extra effort is next year's baseline performance.

I worked at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent salary and benefits
Good employee perks
Up-to-date technology, if you can get to it

Cons

Work/life balance: 90% work, 10% life
If you do an extraordinary job this year, that will be your expected performance next year. You are never good enough.
The US work force gets smaller every year, and the workload increases every year.
There's a lot of emphasis on getting training, but never time to get away from your work long enough to actually get it. Which counts as a failure, come annual review.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You cannot increase the workload and shrink the workforce indefinitely.

    I have been working at IBM as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Amazing People, environment. A lot of transparency and opportunities for interns

    Cons

    Nothing! It was a fantastic experience, Interns are treated extremely well and given actual work responsibilities similar to entry level.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what your doing

    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 ManagementAdvice

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