Pros

I was given the opportunity to work independently and to grow in my job. Working at IBM enabled me to work with many very qualified, intelligent people throughout the world and the company. The on-line learning tools were great for expanding knowledge of new and emerging technologies. My immediate supervisor was one of the best managers I had ever had the pleasure to work with.

Cons

I worked as a contractor so did not get the full benefit of being an IBM employee.

    Pros

    It's a job. They have a good lunch service. lt's a job. Plenty of free parking. It's a job. You get to supply your own office supplies. You do get a desk. It's a job.

    Cons

    IBM's main concern is profits. Making their workers work a weekend a month without additional pay. No real concern for their employees' career.

    Advice to Management

    Think about your investment in your employees

    Pros

    Great opportunities to market different product and technologies (lateral moves).

    Cons

    Marketing is not a career. Most IBM marketers have no experience. It is a placeholder position. They acquire companies and then lay off people. Engineering and Sales focused. Older workforce. Status quo lovers.

    Advice to Management

    Strengthen the marketing profession. Great products don't market themselves.
