I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Company has a great history. The opportunities are good if you have a responsive Band 10 or above to employees needs and concerns. Benefits are fair to on par with industry.

Cons

Where do I begin? No one in this company can communicate for beans. Leadership calls employees resources and gives us all serial numbers...most organizations call their people, well, people or talent. This trickles down to everything...poor treatment of employees, ever shrinking benefits, terrible pay and no increases, company expects the world out of its employees but gives us NOTHING in returns. IBM has sold out to EPS and absurd promises to the street

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to what IBM so strong and powerful in the beginning. Respect your TALENT.

    Pros

    Loved working from home. Managers were excellent in terms of dealing with direct reports. Good work-life balance.

    Cons

    No corporate loyalty towards employees any more. Only focus of HQ is to improve EPS, any way at any cost. In the long-run, this will kill an American icon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit sending American jobs to Brazil and India.

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

    Pros

    If you don't have a job.

    Cons

    Benefits are costly - family $10K/year for health,dental with exposure to $24K/yr out of pocket
    Raises are non-existent for most people. (entire company delay)
    Bonuses are halved every year from the prior year.
    Entire 401k match is at risk every year if you don't stay till Dec 15th.
    80% of IBMers are new in the past 5 years. IBM won't say how many full time USA workers there are.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would not recommend the place.
