Pros

I would say the majority of people there were some of the best, friendliest, and most helpful coworkers.

Cons

Morale has been waning and the perks keep getting taken away. Anywhere to save a buck.

Advice to Management

Treat employees with respect and appreciation.

    Pros

    I won't say that there aren't pros to working at IBM (it's 100 times better than being unemployed). Working at IBM is really OK, but unremarkable.

    Cons

    Antiquated call tracking software that they're too cheap to replace.
    Internal Websites are not easy to navigate.
    Company has a self-congratulatory attitude.
    Lots of irrelevant corporate junk mail.

    Advice to Management

    I don't think management is really interested in anyone's opinion.

  2. was a great company to work for, but they got away for the core values that this company was founded on.

    Pros

    The people you work with, the customers are great, and they will make you feel as part of their team. There is a lot of great and talented people in IBM, and they keep the company going.

    Cons

    the company no longer cares about it's employee's. The focus is making money, and they will do it at all cost. People are let go, retire or what ever, and all they do is give those left working more work, no additional compensation, and taking away your home and family life.

    Advice to Management

    get back to what the company was founded on.
