Current Employee - Enterprise Architectr in New York, NY

I have been working at IBM full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

There is an unlimited opportunity to learn about hot new topics at IBM. I have access to experts on just about any new technology and can ask them questions and give my views. There is also opportunities to apply this new knowledge on products or projects around the globe.

Cons

The raises have dried up in many areas of IBM. This is a big problem.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Let's keep some left-brain / right-brain going on here. Numbers are important but a lot of IBMers think we make bad decisions sometimes because we don't understand our numbers.

    I have been working at IBM full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Competitive compensation
    Flexible hours, depending
    Brilliant coworkers, some of the best in their field
    Poughkeepsie is a great place to live

    Cons

    Regular layoffs, lack of job security due to restructuring
    Cutting small office perks like coffee

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't cut benefits like sponsoring further education back. It will hinder efforts to keep recruiting the best candidates. Consider employee quality of life before making cuts; it's not just a numbers game.

    Former Employee - Architect in Murfreesboro, TN

    I worked at IBM full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    It was great to get to work from home. I enjoyed traveling most every week and all the time I was able to spend in Boulder. The pay was very fair. If I ever had the chance I would probably go back and work for them again.

    Cons

    Always being worried about being laid off. The constant manager turnover was not good, I had more managers than the years I was employed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the 7 years I was there I had 8 managers. Too much management turnover.
