I have been working at IBM full-time (more than a year)

Pros

-International assignments for college hires
-Cross continent collaboration on a daily basis
-Leadership opportunities for college hires
-Flexible working hours and locations

Cons

-IBM politics often times gets in the way of progress and innovation.
-Recent changes in benefits (401K, Thanks Award, etc)
-Expect late night and early morning meetings if working with international counter parts

Advice to ManagementAdvice

-Stop cutting benefits and allocate some real budgets for recruiting and retention - we as a company are losing talents due the recent actions called by the upper management.

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Everyone has a "team" mentality here; Benefits are really good; Career growth and Training/education are available.

    Cons

    Nothing really to report here - maybe the sales plan / compensation needs improvement for such a competitive market.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to filter any unnecessary chatter from the Senior leadership team..

    Former Employee - Market Development Advisor

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Possibility to work remotely
    Some interesting work to do
    Access to brand name customers

    Cons

    Limited career growth
    Excessively outsources its jobs overseas to cut costs
    The 20/15 plan forces the company to buy companies to gain revenue then cut support to gain profitability

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The 20/15 plan is ruining the company. It only considers the share holders and ignores the customers and the employees. The unlimited financial borrowing power can only get you so far.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO
