I have been working at IBM

Pros

Work at home is great.
Benefits are good
I thought I would have more Pros, but there aren't any left.

Cons

Very long hours - easily work 11-12 hour days and still far behind in work
Most work in my area moved to Brazil
No time for education
Constant threat of layoffs...every quarter. I'm just hoping I get it next and get it out of the way. I've probably skirted 8-10 of them already.
Used to perform real analytical work, now we just comply to business controls, perform the minimal work necessary and that's it. No innovation or ...no time for it

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give employees time to actually perform their work and do a good job. I sit in meetings for 6-7 hours a day. Useless....

    Pros

    Hard to identify any that still exist since IBM management has decided to move a significant number of jobs over-seas.

    Cons

    After 10 years at IBM there are too many to mention. Bad management, over worked employee's, terrible pay increases (if any at all), bonus program that is rigged to keep them low. Skip IBM and move on to the next company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop before you destroy the company I used to love being part of.

    Pros

    Employees' experience within IBM varies greatly from team to team and finding the correct fit can be difficult but if/when you find the right the team it's a fantastic place to work.

    Cons

    A lot of projects at IBM are insanely boring. IBM is more than willing to pigeon hole individuals into positions that don't interest them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do a much better job rewarding your top performers.
